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!

Learning the watercolour techniques before we started painting was very useful, and Blair was great at guiding us as we painted.

Lydia San • Jan 2020

Great class taught in a cute open space! Blair is very talented! I liked how she split the class into different sections to help learn new skills then go on to put it into practice. I learnt some new skills and it was great to chat with her directly about all things watercolour from technique to equipment.

The teacher was fantastic, she made you feel that anyone could do this, and that she was there to help you every time if you needed her to. The location was easy to find. Altogether it was a relaxing afternoon that has built my confidence to try Watercolour on my own.

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.

Teacher was good brought us cheesecake and provided all materials. Was a casual class good for groups.

Robyn Larbalestier • May 2019

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!

Annabelle Nguyen • May 2019

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.

Alouise Somera • Apr 2019

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 :)

It was an exciting day, Blair make us feel like a real artist. It’s a relaxing place and just so casual. We didn’t want to leave.

Leah Hou • Nov 2018

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.:)

Jaclyn Kwan • Oct 2018

A very cozy studio, Blair has accomodated our hens party with lovely desserts, and easy to understand demostration of water colour techniques. We BYO foods and drink, making a nice afternoon tea party!

Amy Collorafici • Sep 2018

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!

Emma • Jun 2018

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

Nikos Maniaty • Jun 2018

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!
Do you do workshops for kids as a birthday party? I am looking for an option for my daughter's 10th birthday for 6 to 8 girls.

Yes I do and I’ve done kids party with drawing and desserts before:)

I get all my cakes currently from Dulcet Cakes and Sweets

Parents can come and decorate the place before the class as well.

Just wondering if there will be smocks/aprons provided on the day?

I don’t have any, but the painting we’re going to do is small scale with watercolour, you won’t be needing smock or apron:))
