This is a fun and creative virtual workshop where you can learn how to paint your own artwork that you’ll be proud of, all from the comfort of your own home!

During your online workshop, you'll be guided step by step through the creative process as you turn your blank canvas into a beautiful masterpiece and sip on your favourite drink. You'll be amazed at what you can do in just a few short hours!

We’ll go step-by-step, with Fran guiding - the artwork for this session is a flowering gum. Fran used two screens, so you can see her face and hands/canvas as she paints.

Your teacher is also able to bring a creative fun experience to you for your private small group celebration, perfect for hens party, birthdays or any other celebration.

Please note: The class will only go ahead if there are two or more participants - anyone booked will be moved to a new date that suits them.

Fran is an artist; an educator, neither overshadows, they simply entwine and enrich one another.

At a young age Fran discovered the value of creating art in her daily life. The act of art helped Fran express her identity. The process of developing an idea, especially with jewellery, seeing that idea come to completion by Fran's own hand filled her with satisfaction and accomplishment.  Fran began to see how creating art helped other aspects of my life and learning.

Fran is inspired by nature, patterns, form and texture. Each created piece portrays a slice of life, a perspective of the world in which we all live. Her mediums span painting and jewellery to collage and stitching. They all bring joy, though not everything turns out how she envisaged.

In particular Fran sees the unique design and individually handcrafted nature of bespoke jewellery as an ornamental way of extending personal self-expression. During the creative process, she is mindful that someone will be wearing the piece and it will come alive only when it finds its owner.

Fran is most comfortable in the studio classroom teaching art than in any other place or endeavour. It fills her soul to help others learn by exposing them to tools, materials and techniques of Fran's trade and then develop their skills and confidence in the creative medium.

Through support, conversation and laughter, I set a welcoming scene of free expression.

Ladybird Design Creative Studio is the culmination of creating a life around my passions of art, jewellery and teaching. It frees Fran to take a piece of silver, blank canvas or paper, turn it into a beautiful thing and share it with the world every day. Fran believes now more than ever that pursuing one’s passions makes life more colourful and vibrant, gives us pleasure and purpose, but most of all it reminds us of who we are.

Fran would love to share the joy of creating and making with you.

Had a real blast doing this class & can't wait to do another even if my painting didn't really come out the way it was suppose to I had a lot of fun trying. Fran is a great teacher and the other paintings in the class look amazing.
