What can we expect in these online workshops?
This is a live online weekly course. After the initial introductions, we will dive straight into the day’s project and create together. You will be guided throughout with clear step by step instructions and demonstrations.
I am a complete beginner – will I be able to this course?
This course is suitable for complete beginners. No previous experience is required. All our courses are taught by Dr. Sai Banerjee, an experienced teaching artist and calligrapher. Having taught hundreds of students with varying skill levels, Sai is adept at recognising the challenges that a beginner might face. By following a process-based approach to teaching, Sai simplifies seemingly complex techniques to make it accessible for everyone.
What age group is this workshop suitable for?
Our Creative Sketchbook sessions are suitable for adults of all ages (16+).
I have already attended one of your Art journaling workshop will this be the same?
This course is completely different from our Art journaling courses. Each six week course follows a specific theme and subject matter. In each course, we work on individual projects and explore different mediums, themes and techniques.
What are your class sizes?
Our class size for online workshops is 40 at the moment. However, our numbers may vary depending on the workshop.
Do we have to bring anything?
You will be given a supplies list before the workshop. If you wish to purchase a complete kit, we sell a bespoke Creative Sketchbook kit, which includes a stunning Moleskine journal, Watercolours, Micron pen, Pentel Signo white gel pen and other essential supplies.
Are your classes Covid secure?
As these are live online classes, they are 100% covid secure!
If I am unable to attend the class can I get a refund?
If you wish to cancel due to unforeseen circumstances, you need to give us at least 3 weeks notice in order to get a full refund. As this is an online class, once the course begins we are unable to give you a refund, as you will be receiving tutorials and instructions.
