ABOUT THE EVENT
Spring Flowers Printmaking Workshop
Join this very special workshop and we show you how to create your own plate from clay and decorate it with flowers and leaves.
Design and make your own botanical prints using fresh flowers and foliage.
Zizi is a botanical artist. Capturing the beauty of flowers brings her joy, calm and deep fulfillment. It is so magical to turn something so simple and overlooked into a calming piece of artwork.
XiXi is a passion-driven brand and we absolutely love the process of creating, the flowers, the calm that derives during, and the outcome. That's why we create personal, calming, timeless, and lasting artwork for anyone who wants to feel connected to nature.
In this 3,5-hour workshop, you will watch a demonstration on how to take the imprint of a flower/leaf on paper. Then you will design and make your own unique botanical prints using fresh flowers and foliage. You can frame and display your own botanical prints on your wall later or use as cards to be sent to loved ones.
- This workshop is great for all flower and plant lovers.
- You will make your own unique floral | botanical prints.
- You will receive 5 pieces of art paper in 10x15 cm and 15x21 cm.
- Paint and materials will be provided.
- There will be a selection of flowers and leaves for you to choose from and work with.
- We work with water-based paint. The paint mostly comes off after washing however feel free to bring an apron to keep your clothes stain-free.
We are rolling out our very own plate. We will show you all the tricks, so no previous experience is needed. You’ll use floral and leaves prints and other interesting material to personalize your item and create a very trendy dinner plate! You’ll be reunited with your beautiful plates after we’ve burned them. After a quick retouch with some sanding paper, they will be ready to paint raw white ceramic pieces. Use any of your favorite colors and painting techniques.
