Dotted Christmas Ornaments “Make and Take” Workshop
December 9, 2023
The Alton Mill Arts Centre
Tis the season for getting “dotty”!
DATE: Saturday, December 9, 2023
TIME: 1:00 to 4:00 pm (3 hours)
LOCATION: Studio #206 on the upper level of The Alton Mill Arts Centre
FEE: $135 + HST per person (includes all materials)
Get in the holiday spirit by learning how to make beautiful “dotted” one-of-a-kind ornaments for your Christmas tree or as a gift for someone special.
“Dotting” is the calm and meditative process of applying acrylic paint, dot by dot, to create beautiful circular designs known as mandalas, an easy method that requires minimal art skills. The circular form is very pleasing to the eye and creating them is a deeply absorbing and relaxing process.
In this workshop you will learn the easy dotting technique that can be applied to a variety of ornament styles such as coloured balls or flat surfaces. After a short learning segment and a bit of practice time with the specialized tools, you will have the skills needed to decorate at least two ornament styles of your choosing.
This is a fun, interactive workshop suited to anyone, even if you are a complete beginner. All materials are supplied for your use during the workshop, allowing you to relax and fully enjoy the process in the calm ambience of my studio. By the end of the workshop you will have one or two unique and ready-to-hang ornaments for gifting or keeping, plus the skills to continue making more on your own.
Fee includes all materials. This is an in-person workshop limited to 7 participants which means you get lots of one-on-one help.
