PROFILE

I've been drawing since when I was a kid, I picked up watercolour as I really like the visuals you can achieve with that medium.

I taught some art workshops while I was in uni, and later continued it part-time. But I was passionate enough that I switched over to do this full time.

I draw in my diaries as a creative way to record my daily life and memories.

I particularly love drawing food (I just love food too much) and still life.

I find watercolour painting to be a very therapeutic hobby.

Hope to see you at one of my future classes!

Botanical Watercolour Workshop


Blair was so lovely and an excellent teacher. She provided us all with tips and tricks as well as great tools for us to create a protea flower.

Botanical Watercolour Workshop


The class with Blair was great - she was a lovely teacher and very encouraging, even for beginners! She's clearly talented at what she does but breaks down the shapes and colouring to make it look very easy. Venue was perfect and really convenient being right across from the train station. Highly recommend for a relaxing afternoon.

Dessert and Watercolour Class


Interesting class. Helpful teacher who was kind and interactive. The class needs more organisation though I feel. It was a bit all over the place and ran over scheduled time.

Paper Craft and Ink class


I thought Dora was great, the value of the workshop was overpriced was a bit with no beverages or food was available for the 2.5 hrs and started a bit late (because of late comers) and finished bang on time. They did give yummy popcorn I guess but for the price I paid I was expecting a really nice workshop. They did give a quill and ink to take home which was good but it was such a disappointment that I didn’t get the wooden quill stand that I assumed I would get.
I would recommend it for Dora and her great teaching style and knowledge but don’t expect any add ons.

Dessert and Watercolour Class


Blair came to us for a 3 hour Watercolour workshop. She provided all the materials and showed us samples of her beautiful work. We agreed on a subject then she set to teaching us in great detail how to go about painting with watercolour. Blair was great fun, very passionate about art and patiently went through the process several times until we felt confident. We found the class very worthwhile and enjoyable. Thanks!

Dessert and Watercolour Class


Blair was an extremely attentive and helpful teacher. Throughout the class her feedback was not generic, it was specific to each student and therefore making the whole experience wonderful. Would recccomend for a girls date or team building.

I really enjoyed the class with Blair. She was very flexible. I was the only person in the AM class as the other changed to the PM one, Blair let me choose what I wanted to paint. She was very friendly and helpful. The venue was super convenient just right in front of Train station.
Ps. Thank Blair for the yummy cake! I’ll be back for another class!

Dessert and Watercolour Class


Class was highly enjoyable and accessible for even us as beginner watercolour users. The space was clean and aesthetically-pleasing, and all materials were of high quality and provided for (food included!). The teacher was very flexible in allowing us to choose what we wanted to paint and gave us clear instructions on how to achieve what we wanted for our artworks. She was very supportive and knowledgeable, and I'd definitely recommend this class to anyone who enjoys painting or eating yummy desserts :)

Fantastic step by step instructions. Blair was very organised and gives helpful tips to get the process off to a smooth start. She is highly creative and has lots of experience with watercolour techniques. I would love to do more classes with her.

Dessert and Watercolour Class


Blair’s Class is excellent!
We had lots of fun decorating her studio into a fun afternoon party. Having dessert and painting them at the same time is very satisfying!
Blair is very fun to talk to and she is very helpful in teaching each steps of the painting. If there are some more watercolour theories and each step of the painting provided, that would be better!
Thank you Blair.:)

I thoroughly enjoyed my 2.5hrs being taught by Blair. She is lovely and very patient. I learned so much and I will probably be back again for another watercolour session.

Painting class


I enjoyed this introductory class that Blair taught. She was very personable and welcoming and made the environment very relaxed. I thought it was particularly helpful how she had prepared all the materials for us and explained the purpose of each. I think it is always difficult when one teacher is teaching 10 students but she managed the class well

Friendly teacher, food was great, maybe next time spend a little time on technique to give us a better understanding on how to get the best out of "Water colours" Overall great.

Blair was a great teacher and explained various styles we could use. Tramshed was a great location with a good vibe and energy. Material provided were good and so were the desserts and drink. Would definitely sign up for more workshops with Blair! :)

Dessert and Watercolour Class


Blair hosted my sisters hens day event of the Watercolour and Dessert Class and it was amazing! Everyone got to eat a delicious piece of cake and we all got to create a cute cake artwork piece to take home with us.
The studio was the perfect set up for our event too so bright and pretty and I was able to bring drinks which we sipped on while we painted.
Blair was so helpful with guiding us with our art pieces and made the event so much fun. All the girls had a blast!
The class was so much fun with Blair and the concept, would recommend for groups or even individuals who want to try something unique of eating and drawing dessert as a class event!

Draw and Eat at Madame Shanghai


This was a great class! Everything was well organised, and the food was delicious, served beautifully and in generous portions. We liked the fact that every booking had their own private table, yet the group was seated together. Blair was a very nice teacher who obviously thought well about the assignment she gave us. She made sure everyone learned new things but that it wasn't too challenging for total beginners. A very entertaining workshop, we learned a lot and went home with a nice result to keep.

The class was great for beginners like myself. There was enough time to draw and paint as well as enjoy the delicious food & cocktails at Madam Shanghai. Blair was always available for questions & painting tips.

Dessert and Watercolour Class


Blair was a very friendly, approachable and knowledgeable teacher. You can tell that she loves what she does. The class itself was fantastic - nice venue, yummy dessert provided and great materials provided for our watercolour lesson. She taught us the concepts and techniques in a way that was really easy to understand and apply ourselves, as complete beginners. Great value for money overall

Dessert and Watercolour Class


I went with my partner and we both had lots of fun, and went from knowing nothing about watercolour to producing pretty impressive paintings in just 3 hours! Would highly recommend to anyone who’s interested in visual arts, or actually, anyone who’s just looking for an interesting and unique experience in Sydney!
