Introduction to Watercolour

Introduction to Watercolour at Manchester Craft & Design Centre, Manchester, 14 November 2018, from £60 - Book now

What better way to be creative whilst relaxing than with an informal watercolour workshop? Within the open environment of Manchester Craft and Design Centre, you will be shown how to play with brush strokes to create delicate floral studies.

Sue Kane, who works under the name Fir + Wren at Manchester Craft and Design Centre describes her aesthetic as clean, spacious and simplistic. With a background in textile design, she now produces original art responding to the natural world.

This gentle introduction encourages you to experiment with simple brush strokes to create original work. Sue will guide you through a range of watercolour techniques which you can then put into action in a study using real flowers. The workshop encourages those with no experience to give painting a go. As well as being welcoming for amateur artists, Sue also provides enough content and freedom so that those who feel more competent get a lot out of the session too.

The workshops happen on a monthly basis, and the next one is on the 6th of October. All of the materials are included in the price as well as tea, coffee and cake. Be sure to book in advance though as each workshop has a limited capacity enabling Sue to give a lot of individual guidance and advice.

A large part of  Manchester Craft and Design Centre’s ethos is in engaging non-artists in practical art-making. It is an ideal setting for half a day of escapism, home to a number of artist studios as well as workshop spaces and the Oak Street Cafe-Bar.
