Alcohol Ink Art Workshop for Beginners

Discover how to paint with alcohol inks in Redcliffe

2 hours Class size 1 to 10

label $60 (or 4 payments of $15 Afterpay)

Learn how to use vibrant colours with alcohol inks and create works of art with Kai in her Redcliffe art studio.

In this beginners class, you will learn how to create an abstract painting and some skills in creating a more controlled subject like a flower. You will be able to practice on a few different sheets of paper first and then finish off with your final painting that you can take home, show off and frame.

Alcohol inks are a gorgeous way of creating free-flowing and delicate looking paintings. They are also a lot of fun and a great social experience. Masks will be available and are recommended at times when using ink.

You will be working in a well-ventilated space that reduces the impact of the alcohol and ink gasses. Inks are messy and don't come off the fabric so dress accordingly. Aprons are provided as well as gloves.

We are pleased to encourage people with disabilities to attend our workshops, unfortunately we don't have wheelchair access or wifi. We have had the pleasure of teaching people who identify as deaf and blind. We believe we can adapt our courses to meet the needs of anybody who has a passion to learn.

Tea, coffee and snacks will be provided and the class will take place at the Bluebell Art Studio in Redcliffe. This will be a fun and informative evening where you are guaranteed to come home with a gorgeous piece of art that you will cherish forever!

Come with your friends or come solo and meet some new like-minded people!

I am a young Australian creator who has taken the leap, quit my nine-to-five job and decided to start my own small business. I have an art studio located in Redcliffe, Queensland and from there I spend most of my days painting and/or crafting. I also utilise this space to host workshops that are taught by myself, or by guest hosts who are also local Brisbane creators.

Had a lovely evening doing alcohol ink art with Kia. She showed us a few different techniques and gave us a lot of ideas for future art pieces. All materials were supplied, we got to work in a well ventilated studio and had scrumptious snacks. I would highly recommend this talented artist and look forward to future classes with water colours next class. Corinne

Thoroughly enjoyable class. As a beginner I wanted to learn some techniques to get me started with stunning alcohol inks. I found the teaching clear and simple. I was able to produce pieces I loved as I got the guidance I needed and useful tips all along.
The venue is comfortable and all materials were supplied. Lots of variety of colours to use too. Would definitely recommend.

Such a lovely evening. A relaxed atmosphere and a lovely space to work in. Teachers were friendly and very helpful. Such an interesting evening and having to learn to let go of a plan to create exactly what you want is very tricky to do. The inks have a mind of their own bit nonetheless beautiful

The venue was great. All materials were provided and I brought home 2 out of 4 paintings that I liked. The teachers were interactive and very helpful and showed us ways to improve on what we learned earlier on in the night. Tea, coffee and snacks were also provided which was a nice touch.

Kate Keating Jun 2021

What a fun class this was! It was hands on right from the start with plenty of opportunity to experiment. The teachers were great, encouraging us to enjoy the medium and the freedom is gives to be created. We all went home with something we would be happy to frame (I think). Working with alcohol/ink is unpredictable but that's the fun bit. You never quite know what you'll create. Thank you for a great workshop.

Shay Klimo Jun 2021

Fantastic class and really excellent teachers. They explained everything really well, and there was lots of chance to practise and try different techniques.

Natalie Rijt Jun 2021

Venue was very nice and welcoming with lovely snacks and tea provided. The teachers were great—they let you get on with things but were there to help if and when you needed it. Great value for money and good fun! Have even had a few people say they think I should sell a couple of the pictures I made which is pretty cool for a first attempt! Definitely a great class for beginners-you don’t need to be artistic to make it look good
