Learn the art of mixed media in this two-hour experimental workshop with Artfolk Creative.

Branch out of your comfort zone and push past creative blocks. This workshop is aimed at beginners wanting to get creative and try various mediums in a relaxed environment with plenty of wine to keep those creative juices flowing!

In this workshop, we will cover approaches to combining different mediums to achieve interesting results. You’ll learn new ways to mix unexpected mediums together, and by the end of the session, you’ll be able to apply these ideas to create a mixed media still-life portrait!

Please note: This class requires at least five students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class



Aside from this class, this teacher also has the following coming up:


What you'll get

  • Watercolours and watercolour paper

  • Pencils, pens, pastels and brushes

  • Drawing and painting inspiration

  • Plenty of red and white wine!


What to bring
  • Yourself and a willingness to experiment

Vanessa has always been an ‘arty soul’, growing up in Byron Bay and always dabbling in art and craft. She holds separate tertiary qualifications in Design, Visual Arts and Teaching, and enjoys passing on to others her knowledge and skills.

As a practising ceramic artist for the past 13 years, Vanessa exhibits her work at various galleries in Queensland and New South Wales, her work also part of private collections both national and international. She loves nothing better than pinching porcelain, decorating surfaces and splashing colour. Inspiration for Vanessa’s work comes from the cultural richness that surrounds her. She weaves her experience of travel, art histories and daily rituals into her artmaking. Creating series of themed ceramic works, Vanessa uses either hand building or slip casting techniques and always strives to leave a trace of the hand on her work.

Vanessa enjoys exploring the possibilities of mixing various materials and processes to create art that is evocative, textural and desirable.
