Meet Este



Today you're going to work on wood panels to create 3 works which can be mounted for wall hanging.

Working on wood provides a new type of surface upon which to you'll build multi-layered designs stamped with textured moulding paste to create patterns which can be worked with in many ways you'll explore in this workshop.

You'll take home three works on timber that will also serve as 'samplers' for a range of mediums and techniques you'll definitely want to use again. 


ALL  ART MATERIALS  ARE PROVIDED - no need to buy or bring anything with you


All of the materials you will use in this workshop are same that Este uses throughout her work Golden Paints - with whom Este is a accredited 'Artist Educator'.

In this workshop you'll use:

  • Prepared wood panels (3 panels, 30 x 30 cm)

  • Golden Paints and Mediums

  • Special-effect paints and mediums

We'd love you to join us for this blitz of bling!

 So we're offering it as a FREE BONUS if you plan to do  both art+yoga retreats,  and even if you do one retreat, you'll still pay only £199 for the workshop package. In both cases, you'll  pay for your extra room night (the 14th September) -  , so check the pricing at the end of this page to see the great rates I've secured for your preferred accommodation.

Bling Bloom Bijoux  is a  1-day intensive painting workshop packed with new material and techniques, designed to complement the methods and materials used throughout the retreats. All materials and lunch are included.
