Watercolour & Ink Pattern Making is a 3 hour class exploring the use of watercolour and ink for playful pattern making. Run by Melbourne based illustrator Vanessa Bong, this class will guide students in a series of exercises to create patterns inspired by objects and imagination.  

The workshop will focus on using shapes, colour and scale to create patterns that are different and unique. It will take you through skills such as:

  • Mixing colour
  • Transparent layering
  • Becoming familiar with brushes
  • Exploring wet on wet techniques
  • Using mixed media 

This is a perfect class to explore your creativity, step away from perfectionism and allow yourself to explore, play and create beautiful art.

Everything we learn will be easy to re-create at home with watercolour paints. 

All materials and morning tea will be suppled.
