Make your own Art Doll
Inspired by Frida Kahlo – £120
This workshop was created in response to my visit to Frida Kahlo’s house in Mexico, where I first saw the stunning display of her wardrobe and personal possessions that was brought over to the V&A Museum for the exhibition ‘Making Her Self Up’ in 2018.
You will spend a fun day learning to use painting and decoupage techniques to create and dress your very own art doll inspired by Frida. You don’t need to be able to paint, draw or design as I will guide you through the whole process right from the beginning. You will be able to draw visual inspiration from photographs and books here in the studio, and enjoy using beautiful vintage and contemporary papers from my own collection plus vibrantly coloured acrylic paints. To make your day even more enjoyable, we will also have a delicious Mexican-inspired lunch, home-baked cake and margaritas!
Would you like to stretch your creativity, develop a special project with my assistance or learn all the different techniques I teach at your own pace? My one-to-one masterclasses are designed in consultation with you, the learner, so that you can get the most out of your time at the studio. You could create one or several pictures, give a new lease of life to a loved object or learn specific techniques: whatever the focus, these classes are tailored around you. Typically, sessions last between 4 hours and a couple of days, and the cost is £50 an hour including all materials. Get in touch if you’d like to discuss the possibility of booking your own masterclass.
A creative workshop is a wonderful way to celebrate a special occasion: I will tailor the activity to suit your group and together we will create something to make your event truly memorable. Whether you are planning a hen party, birthday celebration or corporate event, do get in touch for an informal chat to discuss what I may be able to offer you. I can host groups of up to 8 people at my studio in South London, and can also come to your own venue if that is your preferred option or you are catering for larger numbers.
The photo you see above was taken at a wonderful hen party held at the studio last Summer: view other images and read more about it here.
Whether it’s for a birthday, anniversary, Christmas or any other occasion, my pre-paid cards are a great way to give the gift of creativity to a loved one. You choose the value, they choose what they’d like to learn.
