Calling all watercolour newbies and art lovers! With over 20 years of experience in teaching, Australian-based artist and crafter, Pamela Woods, is now live-streaming to the UK to give you the ultimate beginners watercolour painting experience.

Starting out in the world of watercolour can be tricky. Often classes consist of confusing colour wheels and a lack of real guidance. With this online class, you’re sure to get the guidance and help you need as well as some exciting hacks you can learn to get results fast.

This virtual class will get you started on painting flowers, leaves, shapes, patterns and textures right from the get-go. Not only that, but this calming class can act as art therapy. Feel yourself unwind and become absorbed in your painting and allow your worries to float away – perfect for when you’re looking for fun things to do at home to ease your mind during UK lockdown.

You have the option of ordering the class with a box of materials or if you already have watercolour paints and paper you can use them. Please note if you have your own materials you can do this class at a reduced price and join up an hour before the class by emailing the teacher.
