Brilliant Watercolours: Learn and experiment with various watercolour techniques to create a colourful flipbook. Then use your skills and creativity to make your very own one-of-kind wax-resistance watercolour masterpieces. You’ll be sure to have lots of fun in this vibrant workshop where colour is key.
