Discover the flowing beauty of alcohol inks, then take them to the next level by introducing mixed media in this hands-on Brisbane workshop.

This is an opportunity to dive into alcohol inks, learn how to lay down basic layers, practice a few little flowy techniques and also work out some great idea for composition and colour matching. You will also learn to mix alcohol inks with other mediums to create new and exciting pieces.

We will also practice turning failed pieces into unique art pieces in their own right!

The teacher was nice so were the other people taking the class. A better black could have been provided.

A relaxed, fun class with plenty of time to explore and experiment with alcohol ink and other medium on different surfaces on your own. It would’ve been great if there’s a more structured segment in the beginning to include tips on colour mixing/techniques/composition/troubleshooting etc, but the teacher’s on hand throughout the class to answer any question and offer help. Also there’re lots of colours provided and the simple setup & straight-forward process make it easy to continue practising at home.

I really enjoyed the Alcohol Inks and Mixed Media Class at The Paint Bar. Helen was an excellent teacher, very competent and helpful. Helen made the class fun and I heard the other ladies talk very complimentary about her. All in all time well spent.

Helen is passionate about what she is teaching and what she want us to learn from her. The venue is clean and bright, located on second floor above a printing company. All the materials were provided and she is willing the students to try her collections as well, which is amazing! Alcohol painting require lot of practices and time consuming, I love when we are able to try alcohol paint on different paper even tiles
What me and my daughter have learned from Helen is definitely worth the money we paid for.
