Watercolour Mantras

  • Central Parade 6 - 10 Hoe St Walthamstow E17 4RT (map)

During this workshop you'll discover and write your own personal mantra for everyday wisdom using oracle cards and quotes as starting points for inspiration. 

Guest artist Alessa Lanot will guide you to discover basic watercolour painting and colour mixing techniques. Learn to form letters using geometric shapes, and create your own beautiful painted letterforms based on classic typefaces. This mindful process is delicate and absorbing, with stunning results. 

This workshop is suited to all abilities, from those who have never picked up a paintbrush to experienced hobbyists. 

Included in the price is a handcrafted workshop kit to keep, to allow you to develop your skills after class. The kit includes : a handmade Watercolour paint set, an extra fine watercolour brush, watercolour paper, lettering tools, and workshop handouts.

Head & Hands is excited to present Alessandra Lanot, a surface pattern designer and craft instructor. For many years now, Alessa has been encouraging creativity by teaching watercolour and craft classes. With over 300 workshops to date, for beginners and 'non-artists'. Whether you're a first-timer, a hobbyist, looking to rekindle an old passion, or an artist who wants to try a new medium or style, LifeAfterBreakfast workshops are the perfect way to destress and to make time for oneself, to strike balance in everyday life, to learn something new, to make new friends (or bond with old ones!) and of course, to create beautiful things.

LifeAfterBreakfast.ph is Alessa's blog where she chronicles her craft adventures that begin after the most important (and her favourite) meal of the day. View more of Alessa's work on Instragram: @lifeafterbreakfastph
