My name is Julie and I'm an accredited Senior Journeyman in decorative art with the Waterways Craft Guild and I have been teaching narrow boat art for over 12 years.
My training course will take place in the log cabin in my garden. The day will start at 10.00 a.m. and end at 4.00 p.m. The content of the course will be to decorate a wall hanging dinner plate with canal art roses, daisies and a canal art castle scene using enamel boat paint, sign writer’s brushes and the same traditional techniques used to decorate narrow boats.
If you have an item you would like to paint instead of a plate, bring it along with you! The morning will be painting roses and daisy bases on the plate rim and preparing the back ground for the castle scene. The afternoon will be decorating the plate centre with a castle scene and completing the roses and daisies with petals. At the end of the course you will have the knowledge to decorate a narrow boat with roses and castles and decorate items for boats such as water cans, mop buckets coat hods etc. and know where to purchase the correct specialist paints, brushes and materials.
No previous experience is necessary and you don't need to be good at art, come along and have a go and have some fun!
What's included in the price?
All materials are included in the course cost which includes the plate, paints, use of brushes, thinners, etc. and handouts and instructions which will be collated and placed in a file for you to take away with you together with your painted item. Lunch and drinks are also included.
See my other course on this site too "paint roses and daisies on a wooden stool".
