Watercolour Tropical Fiesta with Sarah Hankinson

  • The Windsor Workshop Level 1, 115 Chapel Street Windsor, VIC, 3181 Australia (map)

Ultramarine Violet, Raw Sienna, Burnt Umber – if the thought of these pigments drives you Venetian Red with excitement, then it is time to go troppo with Sarah’s Tropical Fiesta Watercolour Workshop.  During this workshop, you will draw inspiration from all things ‘tropical’.  Think watermelons, pineapples, cacti, palms, cocktails (did someone say Pina Colada?!) - we want you to feel positively balmy when you leave...

Come and be awed by Sarah Hankinson, one of Australia’s leading Fashion Illustrators, as she demonstrates the skill and magic behind Watercolour Illustration. Class numbers will be limited so you get maximum one on one time with Sarah.

Over a fun filled, coffee fuelled, champagne sipping morning, you will learn…

  • The fundamentals of still life drawing.
  • The principles of Watercolour application (such as blending and saturation).
  • The joy of colour.

What You Get

  • There is no doubt you will be the Viridian Green envy of all your friends as they marvel at your newly discovered creative streak (insert Titanium White frosty glances here).
  • A Watercolour take home pack to the value of $40 - paint wheels, 2 x brushes, pencil and high grade watercolour paper.
  • Food, glorious food! Have you seen our grazing table? Let’s just say we not only feed your minds, but we feed your tummies too. We will nourish you with an array of fine food, designed to fuel your body ready to produce that final masterpiece!
  • Oh, and a glass or two of a lovely bubbly from 'Cake Wines'
