Learn about the enchanting world of watercolour with our Traditional Floral Motifs Workshop—an exquisite paint & sip class in Canberra.

This beginner-friendly watercolour painting class in Canberra is held in an inspiring atmosphere and focuses on the rich history of floral expressions, drawing inspiration from the Ottoman, Mughal, and Safavid eras. Spanning 600 years, the Ottoman Empire produced some of the world's most magnificent art, architecture and craft, deeply influenced by their profound admiration for gardens and flowers.

Explore the allure of Rumi-styled shapes, including Hatayi, Penç, cloud, crescent, star, tulips, carnations and hyacinths. These motifs played a pivotal role in Ottoman arts, embodying symbolic meanings and unique styles since the 16th century.

You'll be working off pre-drawn floral templates so you can relax during the class and concentrate on perfecting your watercolour skills, experimenting with colour palettes and mastering fundamental watercolour techniques.

As an exciting continuation of this artistic journey, additional pre-drawn watercolour painting papers can be purchased on the day, allowing you to extend your newfound hobby and continue exploring the intricate world of floral motifs at home.

Indulge your passion for art, history, and creativity in this unique painting workshop. Join us to bring these timeless floral designs to life on paper, and let the beauty of traditional motifs inspire your artistic expression.

For the full cultural experience, this workshop includes complimentary Turkish afternoon tea and sweets. Indulge your passion for art, history, and creativity while savouring the delightful flavours of Anatolia.
