A special set of spring watercolour workshops in the beautiful location of Gullane, East Lothian. Choose to attend one, two or all three workshops (Saturday sessions, 10:00 - 14:30):

  • Mysterious Barn Owl - Sat, 18th Feb
  • Flamboyant Flamingo - Sat, 22nd April
  • Regal Peacock - Sat 17th June
  • - 1 x Session £75

  • DISCOUNT ADDED AT CHECKOUT (select 1, 2 or 3 as a single product)

  • These workshops are suitable for ALL LEVELS. 

    While some watercolour experience may be beneficial, it is NOT essential. We will work through the process together with clear step-by-step instructions. Everyone is welcome, and everyone will be fully supported by Kat Healy. A special 'How To' PDF of each bird will also be available.

    All materials, including special artist-grade granulating and super-granulating Schminke and Daniel Smith paints, will be provided. Each person will also take home a reusable watercolour palette, a size 12 paintbrush and some Bockingford watercolour paper (this ensures any paint from the sessions is not wasted).

    These sessions will inspire and challenge you to create something magical for your home.



    10:00 AM

    • We'll focus on the subject, particularly the bird's facial features, and create watercolour sketch studies to get a feel for proportion and character.
    • We'll also look at colour and texture ideas to bring the bird to life.

    12:00 PM

    Short lunch break (tea/coffee and scones available. Pls bring a packed lunch or enjoy a short walk to Emporium Vintage Tea Room, two minutes away).

    12:30 PM

    • Using the sketch studies and 1:1 support from Kat, you'll create a spectacularly expressive and atmospheric 1/4 imperial size watercolour painting (or watercolour and mixed media if you prefer) of the bird.
    • We'll create colourful textured pieces with special granulating and super granulating pigments by Van Gogh, Schmincke and Daniel Smith. Think split chameleon colours and pearlescent tones - very exciting and satisfying to work with.
