Watercolour + Gold Foil Botanicals with Peaches + Keen and Santiago Sunbird

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

What happens when you cross a Fluro Duo with a Couple of Colour and Design Enthusiasts?  A bloody fun collab is what!  Watercolour x Gold Foil is a workshop worth getting out of your Melbourne uniform for (no black OOTD’s around here!). You will be doubly inspired during this workshop as Bree and Sarah from Santiago Sunbird take you on a Watercolour adventure using beautiful botanicals as your inspiration.  Next up, is Lucy and Lily from Peaches + Keen, who will showcase to you their glittering gold foiling skills, as you bring to life your art work with warm, golden highlights.  The result is a satisfying handcrafted piece of art, rich in colour and texture.  Bring on the warm and fuzzies…

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

  • The fundamentals of still life drawing

  • The principles of Watercolour application

  • Gold Foiling skills and techniques

Check out some reviews from the last Watercolour and Gold Foil Workshop

The watercolour and gold foil botanicals workshop was the first windsor workshop i attended and it was amazing. Very well organised, the artists were great at passing on their knowledge and helping out during the session. The food, teas and drinks were very tasty. Overall a fantastic way to spend a raining Sunday morning. The only issue was that it left a taste for more ;-)

My friend and I loved this class! Lovely surroundings, great teachers and a fun atmosphere. I feel confident now to start using watercolour at home. Would love to do a class at The Windsor Workshop again.
