Delve into the enchanting world of watercolour with our Traditional Floral Motifs Workshop —an exquisite paint & sip experience in Sydney.
Held in a dynamic and inspiring atmosphere, this class focuses on the rich history of floral expressions, drawing inspiration from the Ottoman, Mughal, and Safavid eras. Spanning 600 years, the Ottoman Empire produced some of the world's most magnificent art, architecture, and craft, deeply influenced by their profound admiration for gardens and flowers. Explore the allure of Rumi-styled shapes, including Hatayi, Penç, cloud, crescent, star, tulips, carnations, and hyacinths. These motifs played a pivotal role in Ottoman arts, embodying symbolic meanings and unique styles since the 16th century.
The class is designed to be relaxing, with pre-drawn floral templates, allowing you to concentrate on perfecting your watercolour skills, experimenting with colour palettes, and mastering fundamental watercolour techniques.
As an exciting continuation of this artistic journey, additional pre-drawn watercolour painting papers can be purchased on the day, allowing you to extend your newfound hobby and continue exploring the intricate world of floral motifs.
