Watercolour paint is super versatile and a perfect medium for Painting beginners.

The teacher for this workshop, Irene, particularly loves how colours can be mixed and blended within this medium and how effects can be created by adding more or less water to the paint.

In this class you will use a different reference picture and paint together so everyone goes home with a beautiful handmade painting.

If you would wish to bring your own reference picture to paint please feel free to do so as you are very welcome to draw something else that inspires you!

There is no need to bring any drawing/painting materials as all you need will be provided. Although water paint stains are usually easily to remove from clothes in the washing machine it might be worth wearing something that can handle a stain.

​Classes run from Escape Bar Stratford every other Monday - each class will be different so returning students are very welcome to join again.

You can tell Irene really has a passion for Art and this comes across in her class. She made it fun and instructive and i came away from the class with a picture my kids dont believe i painted. Ill definitely do another class with her.

I really enjoyed the painting class with Irene. I don't feel very confident about my artistic skills but Irene was very thoughtful and took her time with each of us to guide us through the techniques. I also enjoyed that Irene provided different options so we could choose which colour scheme we want to use and which motive we prefer in the center of our art piece :) The group atmosphere was great and after a stressful day at work, I was very happy that I have created an art piece I am now enjoying hanging up the wall at home. Thank you very much Irene and I will definitely book another class with Makings and Musings :)

This was a fun and inspiring class - all materials were provided, along with plenty of inspiration, and no experience is necessary. I hadn't painted since school, but before I knew it Irene had me blending colours and creating a work I could be proud of. The class size ensured plenty of individual time with the teacher and everything was explained clearly and at a relaxed pace. The location is great, a nice airy room with a relaxing atmosphere and a good selection of drinks at the bar downstairs.

Really enjoyed revisiting watercolour painting with Irene and the group on Monday's class. It was such a friendly and relaxed atmosphere and Irene is a very friendly and patient tutor. I'd previously not used watercolour's (gouash paints) since upper school, so I was more then a little rusty, but I was really pleased with what myself and the rest of the group were able to achieve with Irene's guidance. The lesson was well paced and well structured and I'd recommend it to anyone, especially beginners and hobbyists.

I throughly enjoyed our water colouring workshop this evening. Irene, our tutor, inspired us to explore with the many colours we had to choose from and the different techniques that she uses. I was happy that I was able to go home with a painting that I was proud of. The venue was fun and friendly too. Looking forward to attending another one of your classes very soon.

The class was hugely enjoyable and informative. The teacher was very clear and helpful. I learnt much more than I had anticipated and came away with two paintings which I was pleasantly surprised at how they looked. The venue is above a pub and the room had a peaceful and cosy feel. Very suited to learning. I will definitely be going again.

If there’s one thing learnt in this class is that literally everyone can paint and create impressive artworks as long as she/he has been given the right tools and the right teacher. Irene definitely was the perfect instructor for me. She is very mindful and loving, exactly what you need after a long and stressful day at work. I learnt a lot about water colours and I’m very happy with the outcome, the painting I created and took home with me. Everyone’s paintings were amazing to be honest and most of us haven’t held a brush in years, some not since childhood. I cannot recommend Irene’s classes highly enough and I’m really looking forward to creating my next artwork with her!

Another fantastic class with Irene. This time it was watercolour paintings. Irene is a fantastic teacher - patient and knowledgable. She had time for everybody in the class and made sure we all felt confident in what we were doing. I can’t wait to do another!
