Watercolour and Gold Foil Botanicals with Natalie Martin and Peaches and Keen

What happens when you cross a Fluro Duo with an Illustrator citing Enid Blyton, Dr. Seuss and Tim Burton as her greatest influencers?  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 Natalie Martin takes 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…

Check out some reviews from the last time we ran a workshop with Santiago Sunbird and Peaches and Keen:

"I loved this workshop! It was so inspiring, and such an enjoyable way to spend some 'me time'. It was a wonderful introduction to this beautiful medium. I hope there will be follow up ones this year!"

— Hanna

"I really enjoyed the workshop. I learnt some new techniques that I hope to try out soon. I'd never done watercolours or gold foil before and it was a lot of fun.  The workshop was very well organised, so despite it being quite a large group, we all had plenty of materials and instruction. The lunch food was delicious too."

— Karen

"An oversized thank you to Peaches and Keen and Santiago Sunbird for running such a beautiful workshop!”

— Brookearts

"Indulging in watercolours and gold foil - what a fabulous workshop!! And what an amazing opportunity to learn from and chat to all these amazing women in the one place. I'm just a beginner in the watercolour world, so it was incredible to get some tips and tricks from Sarah. Then learning how to add some gold foil from Peaches and Keen was the icing on the cake! A beautifully run session by The Windsor Workshop - thank you so much ladies. I might need to come to next one to do it all again."

— Leanne
