Watercolour Workshop

With Susan Kane

Various Saturdays, 11am - 3.30pm

Manchester Craft and Design Centre

If you’ve always wanted to paint with watercolours but have never been quite sure where to start, this is the perfect opportunity.

My workshop is a relaxed introduction to watercolour, held in my studio at Manchester Craft & Design, with beautiful fresh flowers for inspiration.

We will begin with some warm-up painting exercises and colour mixing before making a small watercolour study from a detailed, floral image. I will guide you through this surprisingly simple and meditative process from start to finish.

After lunch we will start with fun, loosening up techniques with simple, fast, free-flowing brushstrokes, followed by some loose flower studies from fresh flowers. The results are often surprising, you never quite know how the paint will dry and that’s all part of the process and the fascination with this medium.

By the end of the workshop, you will have several, small and wonderful watercolour studies to take home together with notes on the various techniques covered and where to buy art materials.

Classes are small, with no more than 4 attendees, which means I can spend plenty of time with everyone.

All materials are provided along with tea, coffee and biscuits. This class is 4 hours plus a 30-minute lunch break. Suitable for beginners but anyone with a little more experience is more than welcome.
