Painting Class: Paint, Sip and Watch the Sunset

Fun experience not matter the occasion - birthday, hens, anniversary, team building, family fun or just cause you can



2.5 hours Class size 1 to 5 (public classes), 3 to 30

label $45 - $55 ($55 per guest when you book for 1+ guests, $49 for 3+ guests, $45 for 10+ guests. $50 per class surcharge applies for private classes)

Enjoy a workshop, "paletteque" with a small group in a great location - enjoy the view from studio, looking out over treetops into the Valley of the Waters (option for bigger groups Fran can come to you).

Over a two and half hour fun and creative class, you'll paint your own picture that you’ll be proud of. The best time for the workshop is near sunset so you can enjoy the changing colour of the sky while you paint.

Your teacher is also able to bring the creative fun experience to you for your private small group celebration (travel up to two hours from the Blue Mountains) for groups 10-30.

The workshop will go step by step, guiding you to paint original artwork on canvas. The artwork for this session is a flowering gum, a native tree in the Blue Mountains.

All other materials provided - blank canvas, paint, brushes, apron.

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

If your looking to connect via zoom with your team instead, this can also be organised!

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.

Fran is so lovely! Fran is a great teacher we learnt a lot! She is lots of fun to chat with. Her studio is small but perfect for a private session like ours we wouldn't have wanted it any different! Even got a visit from her beautiful fur baby Coco and the cheese and biscuits were a lovely addition. Would recommend for a great day with friends.

Fran hosted a great class. There were 5 of us in the lovely studio (which was nice and warm). The set up was very comfortable, great sized canvas and some nibbles to get us started.

Fran guided us through the chosen artwork clearly and in a very relaxed way. While the paint was drying we managed to watch various stages of the sunset over the National park!

There were 5 of us in the class and we all produced great (and individual) pieces and had lots of fun.

I’d definitely recommend and hope to attend another of Fran’s classes next time I’m in the mountains.

Fantastic teacher with relaxed manner. Made the experience warm, relaxing and extremely enjoyable. We painted a Monet that we were all happy to put our name to. Double thumbs up!

Thank you Fran, we had a lot of fun! The atmosphere in the studio was warm and friendly, and you made everyone feel comfortable. I learned so much about painting in just one class. Your instructions were easy to follow and we both can't believe what we painted. Our daughter summed it up 'did you really paint that?!'
I'd love to do another class at your studio.

Fun time, clear and easy instructions. Fran made us feel warmly welcomed. Beautiful views of the mountains, would recommend this workshop.

Our private class with Fran was fantastic! Beautiful location with a wonderful view and a great atmosphere. We found Fran to be so patient and encouraging with us four very inexperienced artists. She was very warm and generous with her time and advice. It was so much fun and such great value - we are looking forward to our next one!

Caroline Ayden Jul 2020


We had a wonderful evening enjoyed the company and the painting tips were wonderful.
Looking forward to going back again.

Fran was absolutely amazing and a patient teacher. She communicated clearly even before the class began and provided all the materials needed for the class. The gorgeous sunset and cute pets were also a huge bonus!
