About the Workshop: Join gallery director and practicing abstract artist Madeline Young-Holborow for a relaxing 3 hour workshop of abstract watercolour painting. This workshop is designed to be a stress-free session of learning and experimentation for beginners as well as those who have some experience. Join with like minded people in an inspiring and intimate setting and take some time out for yourself.
Madeline will be guiding you through some basic abstraction techniques to get you warmed up to create your own pieces. This class focuses on the process rather than the outcome. We’ll start with some basic watercolour techniques followed by some composition and mark-making exercises with plenty of time at the end to experiment with your new-found skills.
“This workshop was great. Even though I'm experienced in using watercolours, I had never learnt the basics and this workshop actually taught me some very useful techniques such as how to set out a square of all the colours you can make with your palette. Maddie was an awesome teacher and created a really nice environment for us to work in.”
