Learning WITH Lordy Dordie
Upcoming ART WORKSHOPS
Bloom Art Experience
GUEST ARTIST @ Bloom at Elderflower
Brisbane artists Kate Quinn and Emily Day are hosting a gorgeous art experience in the Scenic Rim, only an hour from Brisbane in October 2023. You will enjoy a very special day of art, flowers, food, and wine, overlooking the flower fields of Elderflower Farm, and beside the giant jacaranda trees that shade the Scenic Rim Farm Shop. Our guest artist for this event is the very talented Georgie Forbes aka @lordiedordieart!
Running on either Friday the 27th or Saturday the 28th of October, from 9am-5pm, you will learn how to paint a simple floral still life in a small group, in a relaxed and encouraging environment. Suitable for beginners, as well as those with some hobby painting experience, you will spend a day learning new artistic skills while chatting and laughing with new or old friends. To start the day, Rachel, of the Elderflower Farm, will lead us through the flower fields to pick our own blooms, and then will teach us how to arrange a beautiful bouquet under the shade of the ancient bottle tree. At lunchtime we will enjoy a delicious catered lunch, made by Gen and her team at the Scenic Rim Farm Shop and Cafe, using locally sourced ingredients (some grown right there on the farm).
Emily and Kate will spread the small class of maximum 16 students into 'acrylics' and 'oils' painting groups, and will provide creative guidance in a non-judgemental, kind and supportive way.
Friday 20th October to Saturday 21st October 2023
