Our first van Gogh painting workshop was great fun! Big thanks to the enthusiastic students who signed up to 'get their hands dirty' trying out all the beautiful colours in the van Gogh collection! It was a cold and snowy afternoon but we talked, exchanged ideas and inspired each other in the sunny studio at Mango Reclaimed.
We had all the colours on hand as well as the clear and french caffeine beeswaxes so there was opportunity to try out a myriad of different colour combinations, different distressing techniques and see how the wax finish can add another layer of beauty to finished pieces.
Students painted, distressed and waxed their own (provided) sample boards that they were then able to take home with them - along with the skills and confidence to paint their own furniture.
