Join us for some Japanese painting in a beginner friendly painting workshop at Tatton Park!
Explore your creative side and discover new techniques with this fun workshop experience.
Learn from an experienced local artist, who'll teach you how to paint using traditional materials like bamboo brushes, sumi ink, Gansai Tambi 顔彩耽美 (Traditional Japanese colours), gold leaves on rice paper.
We will bring along a selection of seasonal references from the different Japanese art movements like Ukiyo-e, Rinpa School and also some Japanese contemporary artists.
This painting class is suitable for beginners as well as those with a little more artistic experience, so don't worry if it's your first time. Your teacher will be on hand to provide guidance and answer any questions. Our teacher Ula is a local artist with over 15 years of teaching experience.

At the end of your art class, you'll get the chance to stand back and admire your beautiful Japanese painting or you can share your experiences with the group. You'll head home with your completed piece and a new skill that's perfect to practice whenever you're looking to clear your head.
