Come along to this interactive introduction to Alcohol Inks with Gold Coast artist, designer and teacher Belinda Gillies from www.clickybirdshop.com. A perfect way to start the weekend and get the creative juices flowing!

Never painted before? Not a problem! This workshop is suitable to beginners to intermediate artists. This is a safe & fun space to experiment, play and learn a new skill!

Belinda will advise you on what paper to use, alcohol ink brands and techniques with methylated spirits, leaf foil, alcohol & acrylic inks. Alcohol inks produce beautiful results when blended, leaving you with a bright or moody piece to frame and hang!

What is Yupo Paper?: Yupo paper is a tree-free synthetic paper that's 100% recyclable AND waterproof.

What are alcohol inks?:Alcohol inks are fast-drying, highly pigmented, alcohol-based inks that are great to use on any hard, non-porous surface including glass, metal, plastic, ceramic, stone, leather and polymer clay

"The Magic of Alcohol Inks" is a feature artist workshop from our new series.

Lovely afternoon playing with alcohol inks and different mediums.
Teacher & assistant helped get colours from other tables when asked.

Our teacher was wonderful. Not only did she do a wonderful job of instructing us but she went further offering us ideas ono how to use our designs too. Really lovely lady and wonderful to speak too. A very happy and relaxed atmosphere.

The room as good. The temperature was a little cold at the beginning but as "bodies" arrived it warmed up and was a good temperature. Slightly more room would have been great. We were a little cramped on the tables at times with the size of paper we were using and the inks everywhere. Also in setting the pieces aside to dry it was a little lacking in space here too.

I was a little rushed at the end and failed to complete the final items as I would have wanted too. My fault, but, giving a time progress by the teacher as the class went on might have been helpful. For example, at the one hour and two hour marks the teacher could have advised that we be at a certain stage and thus helping us to keep on track. A small thing and not exclusive to this class, just a suggestion for all classes in general.

A really great class, run by a wonderful teacher.

Had another wonderful night exploring my creative side. Alcohol inks are a whole lot of fun and have a delightfully unpredictable quality. Belinda was an amazing teacher - very encouraging and great at trouble shooting colours (huge thanks to her awesome assistant (Tamara? - I'm awful at remembering names sorry!) in class for always hunting down colours for us).
I also really appreciate the supplies list that Belinda had because now it's super easy to find what I need if I want to try it on my own.

Alcoholic Ink was great. The teacher provided everything we needed and was very encouraging. She also provided a sheet of info for us to take away. It was great to see the variety in everyones work. I thouroughly enjoyed the class and was very happy with my results. We all went home with four lovely coasters. This was my first attempt.......could be a flower.

Belinda was a great teacher. She provided enough base info but didn’t totally guide you, letting you be the creator and in control of your pieces. Great value for money. Came away with four pictures to frame and a set of coasters.
The paint bar is a great venue to hold these classes.
