Watercolour workshops

Join me for a creative workshop online and discover a relaxed approach to painting that focuses on play and exploration. Using simple techniques, my aim is to demystify the painting process, giving you the confidence to find your own unique way of painting. You’ll be encouraged to trust in your feelings, noticing the things which inspire you, your favourite colours and the way you use your brush.

The workshops are a relaxed and supportive environment for you to explore your creativity. Maybe you want to try something new, reignite a passion for painting you had a long time ago, or try some new techniques. Perhaps you want to take time offline and make something with your hands. Painting truly is for everyone and you don’t need to have any special kind of talent or experience to find the joy in it!

Nurturing your creativity is a great way to switch off from your normal routine, and think about things in a different way. Spending a few hours focusing on shape, colour, and composition will help you to be in the moment and you might be surprised by how it can inspire a creative approach elsewhere – such as experimenting with your cooking or giving your lounge a fresh lick of paint.

selected reviews

Michelle is a patient and very knowledgeable teacher and I found her so encouraging and generous with her praise and guidance. She creates a warm and relaxing environment and the time flew by as we concentrated on colour mixing and learning the wonderful ways of watercolours. Made me want to go home and practice what I'd learned.
Marion

Michelle was a lovely teacher and the class was an excellent introduction to water colour painting. The pace was perfect for beginners and the activities were fun and engaging. I'd thoroughly recommend this class to anyone with an artistic interest.

Bought this for me and my mum for a new years prezzie. Absolutely wonderful and Michelle is incredibly knowledgeable and easy to get on with. Felt so relaxed and learnt so much. My mum enjoyed herself and it really ignited her passion for watercolour.
