Abstract Watercolour Workshop

Come and learn from Kelly Basford, a Melbourne based mixed media artist!

Abstract is a fun and very satisfying way to work with watercolours at any level.

Kelly will share some of her tried and true ways of working with watercolour to support your own expression to flourish and gain some foundational insights to get you started.

We will look at:

- Basic colour mixing and colour theory
- How to piece together your own harmonious abstract work using colour and shape
- Mark making techniques with a variety of art supplies

Each participant will walk away with two A4 abstract paper pieces they have created and a small booklet to continue their new found skills at home.

Want to continue exploring “Abstract Watercolour,” at home?

Kelly will have her Watercolour Starter Kits available to purchase, giving you everything you need to continue your watercolour play!

 Kit includes:

  • Set of watercolour paints
  • Paintbrush
  • Grey lead pencil
  • Eraser
  • A5 watercolour paper pad


 Melbourne based mixed media artist, Kelly Basford has been honing her craft from the day she could delicately grasp a brush in her hand. She draws inspiration from the beauty and wonder of the natural world, particularly the vastness and magic of the stars and constellations that paint the sky and the beauty and delicateness of the flowers and plants all around us. Kelly works with a wide range of art mediums, but has a love for acrylics and watercolour, to convey the space and stillness within her finished works.

When she is not painting or teaching classes she enjoys spending precious time with her husband and young son, going for walks or cooking at home.
