The Whimsical Bead

‘Ink Framed’

$50.00 $120.00

In this brand new workshop you learn how to create your own alcohol ink artwork and how to diecut and arrange them to create beautiful artworks (you can also use this technique in the future to create greeting cards).
You will receive tuition from not one but two tutors in Dani and Leanne, who are combining their skill sets to teach this brand new, exciting workshop!

Students will also learn all about alcohol inks – how they work, what they can do, safety aspects when working with them, colour mixing plus more.
You will also learn about different types of sealants including how to protect your pieces from UV light, how to use diecutting equipment and how to effectively display your pieces.
Plus lots of tips and tricks along the way!

This class will run with a maximum of 10 students.

Dani is the owner/creator of The Whimsical Bead and has been creating with polymer clay for 13 years and that, along with metal, is where her passion lies.
Dani loves to teach and pass on her knowledge – particularly of polymer clay – and she feels very lucky that people want to learn from her.

Leanne has had a passion for creating art since she was old enough to hold a pencil.
With a career spanning several decades, she has found ways to express herself through several mediums, dabbling in watercolours, botanical illustration, pottery, mosaics patchwork and many other art forms.
Leanne studied Colour and Design at the Melbourne Studio of Art.
