Japanese Fan painting at Chapter 1 Books, Manchester 29 June 2019 Tickets from £18 — Book now

Although Floating Art have been active for over a year their recently devised Japanese fan painting Workshop is definitely one to watch. Let yourself be guided through this delicate art, whether you’re a complete novice or professional artist, the workshops are open to all and very welcoming. You’ll learn how to use Mineral paint on silk, which produces ethereal translucent results when the fan is held to the light. All materials are provided so that you can just turn up and start painting.

Ula Fung is bringing contemporary forms of both both western and eastern fine art, to those who take part in her workshops, with effortless enthusiasm and panache.

There is no shortage of brilliant art classes to attend in Manchester. However, Floating art offer an alternative to your boozy ‘something a bit arty’ type of event. Lead by visual Artist Ula Fung, these workshops are not only affordable, but give you the chance to get creative and have one to one tuition from Ula in a relaxed environment. Set in the idyllic Chapter One, expect to come away with real skills that you can put into practise without it feeling like a high pressured art, class no matter which class you attend. Their other workshops include Watercolour, acrylic, Chinese and Japanese painting as well as lino printing.

With a background in both western and eastern fine art, Ula Fung is bringing contemporary forms of both disciplines to those who take part in her workshops with effortless enthusiasm and panache. Regardless of the end result, you can be sure to leave her class with a smile.
