What you will do
3.5 hour workshop
A plain glass storm lamp can be transformed into something really special using reverse decoupage. You will learn to apply layers of paper "upside down" to create your own design following a mosaic pattern.
During this 3 1/2 hour workshop, you will select papers from Gabriela's extensive collection to transform a 22-cm tall plain glass stom lamp (supplied) into your unique creation through decoupage. Gabriela will guide you through the design process and show you all the tricks involved in applying layers of thin paper to a glass surface. You will go home with a very decorative stom lamp which is perfect as a centrepiece for a table and can be used with pillar candles, tea-lights or even fairy lights.

About your host, Gabriela Szulman Art
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 to wear” which so far includes silk scarves and a jewellery collection.
Old photograph albums, vintage documents, magazines, books, cards, knitting pattern books and scraps of writing are things that make Gabriela very happy. Second-hand bookshops, junk shops, market stalls, attics and long-forgotten boxes are her treasure trove.
In addition to her own creative pursuits, she is passionate about inspiring other people and sharing her skills, so she devotes a good portion of her time to teaching.
