Week 1 – Thursday 12th May, 6-8pm
KATE BOWER – WATERCOLOUR #1 MATERIALS AND TECHNIQUE EXPLORATION
In this first watercolour session we will learn the basic watercolour techniques such as wet on wet vs wet on dry, working from light to dark, blending, bleeding and layering whilst creating simple artworks. We will combine these techniques with some mindful art practices and discover just how meditative, immersive and relaxing watercolour painting can be.
If you’ve attended Kate introduction to watercolour class before, this will be a perfect opportunity to further hone those skills and practice this wonderful artform. If you’re a beginner, Perfect! No previous skills necessary.
Week 2 – Thursday 19th May, 6-8pm
ADRIENNE DEBRUYN – Up-CYCLED WEAVING #1
Adrienne is a local fibre artist who specialises in bright, contemporary wall weavings and creating works from recycled fabric and yarn. In this weaving workshop, you will learn all the weaving basics (Rya knots and tabby weave, choosing a colour palette) but this is a class with a twist, we will be weaving on found objects; wooden bowls and plates (see pics below!) for a finished weaving project that is completely different from anything you could buy in a store, and you made it all yourself.
Week 3 – Thursday 26th May, 6-8pm
ADRIENNE DEBRUYN – Up-CYCLED WEAVING #2
Continuing on from week 4, we will finish off our upcycled weaving projects, ready to take home and hand on your walls.

KATE BOWER – WATERCOLOUR #2 – FINISHED WATERCOLOUR WORKS
Here we will build on what we discovered in lesson one to put together a final piece. This session will be flexible, depending on the outcome the participants want to achieve. Some ideas for topics covered include watercolour lettering, watercolour florals and abstract watercolour ideas.

KATE BOWER – ART JOURNALING FOR THE EVERYDAY
This introduction to art journaling will include some mindful drawing exercises, art activities to soothe the soul and simple ways to incorporate art into day-to-day life. We are all so busy, and it’s been a CRAZY 18 months. This is the Create Hub guide to creative mindfulness, winding down and finding the calm while letting the creative juices flow.
