What happens in this class?

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 in Gabriela's studio learning to use painting and decoupage techniques to create your very own art doll inspired by the Mexican painter. You don't need to be able to paint, draw or design as you will be guided through the whole process right from the…

Really enjoyable workshop and lunch was delicious. Gabriela's studio is an amazing space to work in, the group was small so we all received a lot of individual support and attention. My daughter and I were really happy with the Frida Kahlo dolls we had made. We would definitely recommend doing this workshop with Gabriela.

Absolutely brilliant class with the added benefit of a phenomenal lunch. My Frida has been everywhere with me since! I achieved so much more of a complex piece than I thought I could have done in the time allowed. Thanks Gabriela!

Last Sunday I was in a full-day Frida's workshop on Gabriela's studio. Great experience from start to finish. Gabriela was a great teacher showing the decoupage and painting techniques. The group was small which was great because everyone received individual attention and support. Gabriela is super patient and enthusiastic and her studio is incredible, every corner is very inspirational. Last but not least, the food experience was "a m a z i n g" homemade cook, healthy and tasty, authentic mexican tortillas, great salads an vibrant margaritas! . I would definitely recommend doing this workshop with Gabriela!

Teacher

Gabriela is an artist and maker. She creates prints and collages, greeting cards, jewellery and scarves with images inspired by memory, nostalgia and a love of everything vintage.

Her work is often humorous and whimsical – unless her romantic side takes over and then you enter into a fairy-tale territory of old-fashioned script, pages of books and music scores populated by chivalrous gentlemen, glamorous ladies, butterflies and rabbits. She blends a fusion of painting and digital media – acrylic, watercolour and ink with digital print – onto paper and canvas to create pictures, quirky greetings cards and a range of “art…

This was a very enjoyable course. I was totally new to decoupage and although interested in art I had never done any practical art since leaving school, many years ago! Gabriela was a fantastic tutor , kind , helpful and encouraging. The whole process lasted all day and so calls for concentration and application but the time literally flew by! Her studio/ home is delightful a gallery in itself. We were made to feel very welcome and she provided a wonderful luncheon for us. She is an interesting host and I thoroughly recommend this course to anyone considering it. My daughter and I took home wonderful Frida Kahlo inspired dolls to hang on the wall and we will certainly be returning to do another of Gabriela's courses soon.
