Joyous Dots: this will be your new relaxing hobby!



If you want to relax and make something beautiful at the same time, dotting joyously is for you.

I'm hooked myself and look forward to sharing this lovely technique with you; any excuse to immerse myself in another joyous dots experience.

Painting with dots is nothing new; think Aboriginal art, pointillism and mandalas. It's so much fun, it's no surprise it has been around for centuries and is still going strong.

The problem is where to start. That is where this class comes in. You will learn how to prepare your paints, use the tools given and find and make your own to make your work truly yours. You will also learn how to use the templates to make pre-made designs and then adapt them to suit your own ideas.

You can choose from 5 different colour sets (blues, greens, reds, purples and pinks).
You can also use my stencils to make your own templates for many a relaxed hour and numerous lovely creations with this unimaginably satisfactory and mesmerising technique. You can even take the stencils home to continue your joyous dotting journey.

This course requires a minimum of two people to run, so why not invite some people to join you?

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

All materials will be provided and there's always a kettle ready to go.
