What you will do
2.5 hour workshop
Calling all novice watercolour painters! This intensive class is tailored to meet the needs of those who are looking to begin gaining experience with using watercolour. Each class is taught over 2.5 hours and is available across both afternoon and evening slots to ensure that you can take part whether you have some free time during the day or wish to relax after work. There is a maximum of up to six people per class in order that Elizabeth can spend enough time focusing on each individual.
The class will begin with a short introduction to colour theory and working with cool and warm colour palettes. We will then explore colour mixing and go through some exercises to become familiar with using simple techniques and to practice different brush strokes.
The rest of the class will be spent working on an individual final piece, painting from life. Elizabeth will continue to provide plenty of guidance and support, working with each student individually. By the end of the workshop, you should feel well acquainted with the fundamentals of watercolouring and feel confident to continue developing your own work and style at home.
The class is taught using only the highest quality of materials. Elizabeth can also provide guidance on recommended brands and equipment for future use.
You will each take away your own complete set of professional Windsor and Newton watercolours (RRP £18.99), some sheets of high quality 300gsm watercolour paper and a brush to continue practising with at home. And hopefully a new love of watercolour painting!

About your host, Indi Skoven
Elizabeth is a full time watercolour artist based in Angel, Central London and has been painting since before she can remember! She is the founder and designer behind the brand Indi Skoven ‘Into the Woods’ Prints, a collection of watercolour botanical and nature-inspired prints designed for use within the home. Elizabeth is known professionally for her prints but she also enjoys painting cityscapes and people for pleasure. Her desire to put paintbrush to paper is inspired by many things, from wandering past bloom-laden city flower stalls to driving down summery country lanes. She loves to bring the prettiness and wonder of nature indoors, whilst rendering it a little bit quirky along the way.
Elizabeth loves to teach and is keen to help others develop a nuanced understanding of how to get the most out of using watercolours as an artistic medium. She is motivated by seeing her students grow in confidence, enabling them to begin creating work around the themes which they find most inspiring.
The class is taught in a very friendly and relaxed environment and welcomes anyone who is curious to learn how to use the wonderful art form of watercolour painting. All materials will be provided, so just come as you are to enjoy learning a brand new skill. Plenty of tea and biscuits will be on standby to fuel your efforts!
All students under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.
