What you'll do
Guests arrive to an offer of home made tea or coffee along with light vegan and gluten free snacks. Guests are also welcome to bring their own. They then find a work space set up for them with a prepared canvas, paints, apron, gloves and all tools required. This will either be inside my home or outside in my Alfresco area depending on weather. I spend 45 minutes demonstrating how to prepare the paint, pour onto the canvas, and work with the canvas and other tools to achieve the desired results. Guests then choose their own colours and I guide them through applying to the canvas. I start Guests off one after the other so they finish one after the other. This allows for more interaction between guests. Guests control the process but have my assistance if they feel unsure or think they need it. I find guests tend to get very involved in the pieces being produced by other guests, so the atmosphere tends to be one of appreciation and reinforcement. Paintings take up to 24 hours to dry, and are kept flat and indoors. Paintings can be taken on the day - I provide gloves and sheets of plastic so guests can transport their piece. They are welcome to collect the following day.
I have a long history as an artist with many completed canvasses and a host of other craft activities that I enjoy. I am also have University qualifications in Architecture so have always lovely art, design, composition, colour and meaning. Pour painting is a new art form I've been avidly exploring over the last year or so, running Pour Painting classes and demonstrations, selling some of my work while still wet. It's a beautifully immersive art form accessible to people who believe they can't paint. My mission is to empower those people to produce their own bespoke artwork.

Where you'll be
Guests visit my home or a local venue to participate in the class. I set up tables and prepare workspaces for each guest either in my home, my outdoor area or at a local venue depending on numbers of guests. In any case guests will see other pieces I have produced and can be inspired to decide what colour combination they might like to explore.
