Children from 9 years old are very welcome to attend the workshop, however, they must be accompanied by a paying adult please. Everyone will dot and will receive help throughout the session. We have easy to follow instruction that you will really enjoy. 

Previous GoDotty workshop participants are welcome to attend any session at the workshop amount. You will receive the same stones and all art materials are available to use. You may start without instruction. 

About the Instructor

Cheryl Marie Wright, graphic designer, chief art maker and founder of GoDotty will show each participant how to dot using premium paints and a range of dotting tools to create a beautifully layered decorative art stone you can be truly proud of. 

The main purpose of a dotting workshop is to showcase this beautiful and inexpensive art form full of meditative benefits. You do not need to be artistically gifted to enjoy this craft. Using dotting rods of different sizes dipped in acrylic paint, we start from the centre and work outwards to create a pattern. We layer our dots. The end result is remarkable. 

How will you do it?

Before dotting on our small round stone, Cheryl will demonstrate a range of dotting techniques on a small piece of black card using white acrylic paint. Everyone will follow using the same tools and methods. When ready, we will start on our handmade stone cast or surface type depending on the class content. There is no rush - we relax, breathe and enjoy the process. Cheryl is with you every step of the way. 

What time and where?

The session will be held at a wonderful space called The Painting Patch. This is an intimate setting for a maximum of 6 participants per class. Cash is taken on the day of the event. Lovely refreshments will be available throughout the class, although please bring a bottle of water and any favourite snacks you would like to nibble on. We will enjoy a break with hot drinks and snacks. :-)

With classical music, relaxation and being completely engrossed in this beautiful artform, we will make new friends and enjoy our craft no matter what our creative abilities.
