Workshop: Create Amazing Christmas Cards

Join Sarah Roche for a 2hrs+ workshop to build on the leaf painting skills learnt in her recent Arty Class. Filmed live on Thu 12th November 2020.

Upload Completed Artwork to this Facebook Post >

Work on a painting that you can use for your Christmas cards this year. We will use pen and ink and then watercolour washes to create a beautiful image.

Sarah will explain how to get this ready to be printed so that you will be ready to send out your own Christmas cards!
