About

Visit our still life exhibition, then have a go at painting your own masterpiece!

Using watercolours, you'll develop a loose and relaxed painting style, and experiment with blending colours. You'll experiment on watercolour paper, and then paint a final piece on watercolour board, to display at home.

Flowers often feature in still life painting, so we'll provide some beautiful bouquets to inspire your creativity (these will be allergy-friendly artificial flowers). You're also invited to bring objects to add to your composition - treasured toys, family heirlooms and your favourite colour objects will help you to create a still life that's personal to you.

Please note, this is not a taught class: materials will be provided, and still life artwork will be on display to inspire you. The focus is on experimenting and getting creative under your own steam, rather than formal learning.
 
Age recommendation: activity suitable for ages 4+. Adults encouraged to participate too!

Tickets: Each table can accommodate one household bubble. Please book all of your party onto one table. Maximum of 6 people per table. Please do not bring anyone who is not in your household bubble. Everyone attending requires a ticket.
