Outdoor Floral Watercolour Painting Workshop

A perfect, arty garden get away



2 hours Class size 1 to 20 (public classes), 6 to 40 label $95

Looking for hens party ideas or a getaway with some friends? Join Pamela Woods for her relaxing watercolour painting workshop in the Blue Mountains!

Explore a beautiful, historic, garden home and pick some flowers and leaves to paint with watercolours. Pamela will show you how to use basic brushstrokes to create lots of different flowers based on whatever varieties are blooming on the day. It's so relaxing to sit in a beautiful garden and just paint. There is plenty of undercover area around the house so we can keep painting even if our sunny day becomes a stormy one.

If you're looking for creative activities to try in the Blue Mountains, why not learn a new skill from a friendly professional at this watercolour painting class for beginners.

The mountains can get cold and we will be outside to be covid safe at all times so please bring warm clothing! We will sit on a terrace under cover if it rains.

I have had the best life ever, following my passions. I have worked as a script editor and writer and been a course leader and senior lecturer in the UK in film and TV and before that I was an illustrator and artist.

For the last 5 years have become increasingly interested in informal learning. I run classes around Sydney in different venues and concentrate on my passion of growing succulents, art and the art of teaching. I go by the name classbunny.

It was excellent! Ran very well. Even though I have almost no creative streak, Pamela kept things simple and I managed to produce something that looked good. She even provided cake and tea. All of the people I went with (because it was for a hens) thoroughly enjoyed it.

Michele Driscoll Feb 2023


After giving us a comprehensive introduction to the tools used in water colour painting, Pamela expertly demonstrated simple brush strokes to produce a variety of different shaped leaves and petals. Trying out brush strokes, sitting on Pamela's verandah was peaceful and relaxing and a lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon. It was good to be able to explore different paints, brushes and papers to work with. Pamela's workshop was full of generous instruction, materials and a sumptuous afternoon tea. It would be difficult to say what I enjoyed the most - All of it!

Dominique Pankhurst Feb 2023


The class was relaxed and enjoyable. The information provided was helpful and instructions were clear. There was plenty of time to practice and get constructive feedback from Pam. Would recommend this course to anyone!

Heidi Langshaw Jan 2023


I really enjoyed the simplicity of the class & Pam’s teaching. We were shown the basics then how to put it together. She was approachable & quick to show us where we were going wrong & how to fix it. Usually by adding more water & thinking less

Very enjoyable. Lovely venue. Plenty of equipment provided plus a substantial afternoon tea. Friendly and welcoming atmosphere.

Glenda Pryor Jan 2023


Pam was very clear and also encouraging. She covered a lot of skills in a step by step way that built during the afternoon. I feel I have lots of skills I can practice and take forward. Lovely garden location and amazing afternoon tea. Great materials. Really enjoyable time. Thank you Pam

Gina Villar Jan 2023


Thoroughly enjoyed this beginners class in watercolour. Pamela was terrific - warm, welcoming, excellent at explaining the techniques & making watercolours fun & accessible for beginners. There were plenty of materials, plenty of opportunities for experimenting & learning & plenty of opportunities for guidance. The location was perfect - on a deck overlooking the garden, with plenty of space & natural light. Icing on the cake was a delicious spread for afternoon including home-made scones, home-made blackberry/blueberry jam. Too good. Thanks for a terrific workshop, Pamela, much appreciated.

The teacher, Pamela is a very experienced, she was attentive to any questions I or others asked. This really helped me be confident with the heaps of skills we learnt during her class. She was very encouraging. Also alot of fun. She introduced a lot of information for me as the beginner. The venue; A private garden in the beautiful Blue Mountains in Spring!The materials provided were generous and value for money.I thought this class was great value for money. I came home packed with lots of information, there was an energy filled with experience and fun, very creative and I would do another class with Pamela. Very please with what I learnt. A fun way to learn and enjoy/explore your creative side. The homemade afternoon tea was the icing on the cake. 10 out of 10 for me.

Perfect intro to water colours and techniques magical location and inspiring garden. Thankyou Pamela - it was a complete pleasure to lose ourselves in the afternoons creativity.

Alex Coombs Oct 2022


Great class! Pamela was an excellent teacher. I went with a friend who is quite an artist whereas I'm a bit more timid. She was very inclusive and addressed students at all levels of proficiency with really insightful help. My friend and I were really impressed. Will definitely be attending further classes.

Stephen Coombs Oct 2022


What an amazing class! Pamela certainly knows her subject and gave us a mass of useful tips and advice on everything from techniques to materials. Her own tiny paintings seem effortlessly beautiful but she showed us all how to confidently find something magical in our own work. Inspirational!

Mylie Jersey Oct 2022


Excellent class. Pamela was great at teaching us different techniques to achieve beautiful results. The setting was lovely and well set up with everything we needed. I am surprised at how much we learned in an afternoon. We were also treated to a next level afternoon tea.

Kat Budrys Jul 2022


Teacher was engaging, easy to communicate with, flexible and knowledgable. The class was fun and I would highly recommend and do any of Pamela's classes.

Nola Myers Mar 2022

I really enjoyed the outdoor floral watercolor painting workshop with Pamela. She was an approachable and talented teacher who made the process of painting various flowers and leaves easy to follow and implement. All good quality materials and an excellent afternoon tea were provided.
