3 hours 1 to 30 (public classes), 12 to 60 label $65 - $75 ($75 per guest when you book for 1 guest, $65 for 2+ guests)


In a special Mother’s Day class, Sally will lead you in a fun and relaxed class of watercolour portraiture painting, Through practical demonstrations and theory, you will learn about colour mixing, paint application, colour intensity and washes, composition, drawing, and how to control the medium to achieve different effects. Sal will also break down the structure of the face, and how to render a person’s likeness in a painting.

You’ll be painting your partner's portrait in the class, so bring along your mum, your dad, bestie, sister- whoever- and leave with your own completed watercolour painting good enough to frame! (one ticket per person required, but we’ve discounted the second one for you) Want to come solo? Still come along- we’ll have some portrait pictures on hand for you to paint (or bring a piccie of a loved one)

This class is perfect for beginners, or those who have had painting experience before, and will make the ultimate experience gift for you and a loved one.

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 and palette with a range of colours

  • Selection of watercolour brushes, pencils and erasers

  • Guidance and tuition on watercolour portraiture basics


What to bring

  • A thirst for painting and trying something new!

  • Your mum, dad, sister, cousin… (discount for the second ticket applies)

Sally Conwell


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.
