Monoprinting Greeting Cards

Monoprinting with gelatin plates is fun, easy and contagious! In this half day workshop you will play with found and organic shapes, and mark-making to produce a series of greeting cards. With monoprinting no two prints are alike, which means images can only be made once!  You will leave at the end of the workshop with up to 10 cards and matching envelopes, and the ‘know how’ to continue creating your own cards at home.

Beginners Acrylic Painting

Create your very own Golden Bay inspired seascape painting with hands-on help from artist Lisa Chandler during this workshop. Lisa will talk you through the process, show you how to mix colours and apply paint. Images will already have been drawn out to help you get straight to work and have fun playing with paint. You’ll be amazed at what you can achieve in such a short time! You’ll get to take your masterpiece home, have fun and learn a new skill.

Acrylic Painting Problem-solving

Beginners Acrylic Painting

Painter Lisa Chandler will take you through this step by step class to produce your own Golden Bay inspired seascape acrylic painting. There will be a selection of photographic reference images for you to choose from but participants are also encouraged to bring along their own photographs. Using traditional and experimental techniques to explore mark making, colour, and textures by the end of the day you will have a finished seascape painted onto either canvas board or acrylic paper (your choice) to take home with you.

Mixed Media Painting on Paper

Enjoy a day of creativity and fun led by painter Lisa Chandler. This workshop can be tailored for complete beginners and also for intermediate artists wishing to explore new approaches. You will be supported to make a unique mixed-media artwork to take home at the end of the day, by being playful and exploring different mixed-media techniques.

Low Tech printmaking

Explore the basics of low-tech printmaking and investigate processes that can be done without the use of a printmaking press. Simple plate-making and image transfer methods will be demonstrated and participants will learn a variety of printmaking techniques including: basic relief printing (linocuts), collagraph (printing from collaged plates) & mono-printing (one of a kind prints). This is a very creative, fun and process based workshop!!

Acrylic Painting Masterclass
