Part 1 : 
Exploring basic techniques

To begin, you will explore the many creative possibilities of brushes in different sizes. Round, pointed, square or angled: each one allows for the creation of delicately shaped leaves and petals. You will also experiment with transparency and colour diffusion effects on wet surfaces.

Part 2 :
 Time to get creative!

In this second part, you will put into practice all the techniques you have learned by making a beautiful, flowered wreath. You will have the opportunity to ask questions throughout the workshop.
