Garden pARTy: A Garden Art Workshop

Saturday, 12 August 2023 - This workshop will be held in artist Chantel Traub's garden, planted with creativity in mind. The workshop will feature two exciting classes, including a natural dye and eco-print workshop led by Chantel Traub and a floral still life workshop taught by Renee.

They will learn to use natural dyes and create beautiful prints on silk fabric using plant materials. In the floral still life workshop, participants will learn how to paint beautiful floral arrangements using watercolour and ink. Renee will share her expertise in creating expressive still-life compositions and provide guidance to all attendees. All materials will be included in the workshop fee, and participants will have a wonderful time learning new skills and creating beautiful artwork in a serene and inspiring environment.
