About the event
Reconnect to your inner artist
Create a meaningful work of art in a workshop led by artist Birungi Kawooya, in a mindful and inspiring environment. I will provide the same love and self-care, portraiture and nature-themed stencils in each class and you can always freestyle and make your own original work of art with my support.
What you can expect
Firstly I will guide you in a meditation to empty your mind and become more mindful and connected to your inner artist. You will warm up your hand with some simple drawing exercises that will improve your confidence.
You can pick from my range of nature, male and female portraiture and love themed stencils which you can use to create your artwork or I can help you to develop your own ideas, so you can achieve your artistic vision. You will have time to sketch and practice using the craft knife. Step-by-step I will provide you with close guidance along each step of the sketching and cutting process.
Finally, you will pick a vibrant African print textile as your “paint” and bring the energy and warmth of African to your homes. After focusing your mind for just three hours you will create an impact and memorable work of art and be proud to have shattered through limiting beliefs. With your newfound confidence, pride and skill - what else will you achieve?

It's a real pleasure to be able to meet up once again and welcome you to face-to-face workshops. At this time of reopening, we take the safety of our staff and customers seriously. To help prevent the spread of Covid-19 we are taking a cautious approach by limiting the number of participants to 6 as well as asking all participants to wear masks and show evidence of a negative lateral flow test 24 hours before the workshop starts.
