About the Event

CONTENT

In this unusual floral workshop, you will develop your own visual lexicon to create your personal vision of Australian native flowers.

You will be introduced to ink painting to create some stunning backgrounds on which you will later stamp and collage floral patterns you have created yourself. You will  discover how to build a personal way of rendering flowers through the use of white and black ink as well as gold leaf.

By the end of the 6 hours workshop you will have produced a series of A4, A3 or even A2 paintings, on watercolour paper and textured paper with your own floral art
