“Step on it: Funky Fishy Garden Stepping Stone!”

            A Workshop with Ingrid Monteith

    Sunday, June 17, 2018 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

 

CANCELLED

 

 

 Workshop Instructor

Ingrid has been fascinated with Art since her early teens in Northern Ireland.  The theme of most of Ingrid's art is a love of nature and natural materials.  This fascination has led to creations that include wild life paintings on rocks and fanciful enhancements of naturally sculptured driftwood.   Most of Ingrid's art is painted on local materials, such as quarry stone for the rock paintings.  She focuses on local flora and fauna.  Rain Forest Frogs are the exception, using rocks that split in two or three levels accidentally by her chisel.  They are just too adorable to be passed over!

 

Workshop Description

I originally did this workshop for children and was amazed by the number of adults who wanted to paint the stepping stone.  Someone even bought my demo!

 I have made ten fish stepping stones and ten round plain ones.  With the round ones you can create your own masterpiece!  It could be a mandala, a flower painting, geometric pattern or wildly abstract.  The choice is yours!

 

Materials

Note there is a $10.00 materials fee payable in cash to Ingrid on the day of the workshop.

Ingrid will provide:

A yin and yang fish stepping stone with metal hook.  (It can be hung on your patio wall, railing or fence.  Or used as a stepping stone!)

A round stepping stone.

Acrylic all purpose paints.

Varathane outdoor varnish spray.

A variety of reused brushes.  (If you have favourites please bring your own.)

Recycled styrofoam food trays as palettes.
