We are so excited to have Yvonne Zonnenberg visiting from The Netherlands to run her internationally acclaimed creative body painting workshop.
Yvonne's workshop focuses on techniques and tools to give you the groundwork to unleash your creativity. Exploring concept, design, and composition - you will finish the day with a final image you can be proud of, and that will also reflect YOU.
Keeping the final photograph in mind while you paint, you will have one on one attention from Yvonne, assisted by her husband Gareth throughout the day. Yvonne would also like to be able to contact you beforehand to talk to you about your ideas for the day and what you would like to achieve personally.
If you have an accessory, backdrop, or piece of inspiration that you would like use as your creative spark, Yvonne will show you how to work with it to create a finished image you can be proud of.
Date: Saturday February 23rd
Time: 10am to 5pm
You will need your own body painting kit for the workshop (paint + brushes). Don't hesitate to get in contact if you are just starting out, and need to borrow some paint. We will also have a mini version of our shop there for anyone who needs to purchase anything.
