If you still want to attend this class, please first consider government restrictions in NSW. If you are currently allowed to attend, but are later prevented from doing so, we will either postpone your booking, or refund you. You are always welcome to gift this class.

The only thing that can possibly make two hours of messy, creative fun with the ray of sunshine that is Sally Conwell better, is wine. So that’s what we give you.

You can be a complete beginner or maybe you’ve got some prior painting experience. No matter, you will have a blast at this Friday night class that will teach you the practical skills and techniques used in watercolour painting, along with a killer playlist, lots of laughs and a few glasses wine from our brothers from another mother, Cake Wines.

You will learn about the specific properties of watercolour paint, and develop practical skills and techniques in paint application, brush-work, colour mixing, rendering light and shade, tonal value, and design in watercolour painting.

By the end of the class, you will have completed one of your own watercolour paintings, and be able to take their new skills to continue developing in their own style, in this particular medium.

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, Work-Shop also has the following coming up:



What you'll get

  • Watercolour paper & palette with a range of colours

  • Selection of watercolour brushes.

  • Photos, objects, flowers and other sources of inspiration


What to bring

  • A thirst for painting and trying something new!

  • BYO drinks! (of any kind!)


Suitable for

This class is a great indoor activity idea for individuals and couples as well as for a birthday, hens party, team building activity, corporate event, bucks party or Christmas party.

This would also be a great Mother's Day gift idea.

From a young age in the suburbs of South Sydney, Sally was busy getting paint on her mothers carpet. Before the age of 22 she had completed two scholarship residencies in France, and launched a bizarre range of greeting cards that make very little sense, under the name Sit Still Sally.

She can’t actually sit still, and each work is different from the last. Sally completed studies in Fine Arts at the College of Fine Arts, with a focus on oils and watercolours,  and continues to work as a practising, emerging artist in Sydney’s inner west.

With any time left over, she likes to dabble in the world of illustration, design, and other crafty things, inspired by everything nonsensical, colourful and wonderful.

This class was terrific. Sally Ann was lovely and smart and funny, and she turned two highly self-critical people into true believers. This was the first time I enjoyed painting. Would visit again in a heartbeat.

Loved this class. A great beginners class, with sincere encouragement from Sally. Started off with some basics but built up quickly to paint something that I'm quite proud of. Would recommend to anyone trying out with painting.
