Japanese Painting Workshop

13 August @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Paint with traditional / Contemporary Japanese painting techniques.

Explore your creative side and discover new techniques with this fun workshop experience.

Learn from an experienced local artist, who’ll teach you how to paint using traditional materials like bamboo brushes, sumi ink, Gansai Tambi (Traditional Japanese colours), rice paper board or stretched silk on a bamboo Frame or fan.

We will bring along a selection of references from the different Japanese art movements like Ukiyo-e and Rinpa School. We will also introduce the seasonal topics that help you to capture some stunning Japanese scenes.

This painting class is suitable for beginners as well as those with a little more artistic experience, so don’t worry if it’s your first time. Your teacher will be on hand to provide guidance and answer any questions.

At the end of your art class, you’ll get the chance to stand back and admire your beautiful Japanese painting or you can share your experiences with the group. You’ll head home with your completed piece and a new skill that’s perfect to practice whenever you’re looking to clear your head.

This workshop is located in a spacious Tea Shop and Bar in West Kirby. Delicious food and drinks are available to purchase.
