The workshop is designed to be easy, enjoyable and at the end you’ll have your very own big and bold abstract painting to display at home.
What do I get in my full painting pack?
- One Large Stretched Artists Canvas
- One Acrylic Paint Pack
- One Brush
Extra canvases and brushes can be purchased using the link above.
Painting packs will be available for collection prior to the event.
How do I prepare?
On the day before the workshop starts, set yourselves up at a large table where you are comfortable to sit or stand while you paint. The canvas can be placed flat on the table for the workshop or you can prop it up against something so its tilted and upright if you prefer. Put on some music, or make some treats to enjoy as you paint!

- Old clean cloth to wipe brush/kitchen roll /baby wipes
