This is a fun and fluid workshop to create a mixed media canvas. Suitable for complete beginner's you will use a variety of techniques to create stunning effects. Learn about composition, then create your design from a huge selection of embellishments and textures.
Colouring is done using bister sprays and dry brushing to finish off the piece. Very different to traditional painting, this art style can be completed by anyone and is suitable for all skill levels. Learn to work in a completely free way and see the piece develop before your eyes!
