Bespoke Workshops

I have developed bespoke workshops for a number of brands including Pinterest, Stylist Magazine, EtsyOasis, Topshop, Battersea Power Station and Seven Dials. I love working with a brand to develop a workshop that is perfect for their event.

Pinterest Interior Design Awards #BestOfPinterestUK

I was invited to teach a drop-in watercolour workshop at the very first Pinterest interior design awards. It was such a beautiful event, held at  Instagramable Bourne and Hollingsworth. Inspired by the trend for large scale abstract watercolour wallpaper, I taught the guests how to create their own watercolour backgrounds. The A3 watercolour backgrounds they produced are perfect for styling Instagram flat lays or for product photography. I worked with Seen Presents on this event, photography by Tribal London.

Etsy Pop-Up wedding fair at West Elm

I was asked by Etsy to teach some brush lettering skills to the attendees of its pop-up wedding fair at West Elm. The workshops were very popular and the tickets sold out within three minutes of launching. Across two days I taught 24 students how to create beautiful brush lettering, ideal for brides (and grooms) hoping to DIY their wedding stationery. The workshops received a lots of interest on Instagram and on the day from other people attending the fair.

Oasis x ZSL

I worked with Oasis on incredible event at London Zoo, launching their new collection. Members of the press met the animals on a private tour of the zoo and then I taught a mini watercolour workshop. I taught everyone how to paint watercolour animals inspired by the prints in the collection. I also hand painted postcards to be left as a gift in each guest's room.
