This is a must-do workshop for all Sheleeart Style enthusiasts!
The workshop is ideal for beginners, but also if you’ve had a go at the technique and finding that the right consistency, ingredients or blow technique is just not working, then this is the class for you!
Classes are kept to 3 persons per session – keeping us COVID safe. I’ll be working alongside you; helping were needed over the course of the approximate 3-hour workshop.
Fair warning – there is a bit of information overload here as there are many factors at play in creating the perfect bloom, but I will guide you step-by-step to help you to achieve the consistent results you have been searching for. And yes, carefully prepared notes with all the information will be available to you.
Each participant will create 3 (20x20cm) canvasses and one larger (35x35cm) canvas – ideal for practicing multiple blooms, experimenting with colour combinations as well as the best way to blow to obtain amazing cells.
All art materials, tools and instruction sheets will be provided.
Learn proper techniques and how to use tools, paint and mediums to achieve a successful bloom full of dimension and cells. Learn how to create your paint ‘pillow’ and pouring medium that works with both paints and pigments. Learn the correct way to ‘surf’ the cell activator over the colours with a natural blow, but also by using various tools.
So, get your blow on …. It’s your time to Bloom!

You will get close to your art— for those with long hair it is recommended to have a ponytail and/or headband to keep your hair out of your creation. I recommend you wear comfortable clothes and please bring your own apron or painting shirt. Gloves are provided.
The art work that you’ve created during the workshop will be yours to take home – however, this will NOT BE DIRECTLY after the class as your artwork will still be wet and cannot be transported.
Your finished canvases require a drying period of min. 6 days and will need to be collected after this time from the venue. Shipping can be arranged at an additional $25.00*
The workshop includes some nibbles and a coffee/drink will be provided. Please advise me of any dietary requirements (for food) ahead of time.
Refunds. Cancellations up to 10 business day before a workshop will receive a refund. Please note that a $10 cancellation fee will apply due to transaction and administration costs.
