If you seek an alternative to printed wedding invites, you might want to consider a more personal touch - painting. At this workshop hosted by Marina of My Sweet Scarlett, you will learn how to paint flowers and wreaths, which will be really pretty on your wedding invites.
The workshop will begin by introducing artists to the various types of paints, as well as practising colour blending techniques. You will also be shown the brush strokes needed to paint intricate leaves and flowers. During the workshop, you will experiment with watercolour, gouache and acrylic paints.
The workshop is a perfect entry point for beginners, providing a basic understanding of how to paint an original artwork.
The materials included are an art diary, blank cards, paint, brushes and a bag. The workshop lasts for around 2 hours, and it costs $95, but the skills you pick up will last you a lifetime, and it will create some beautiful memories for you, your significant other and your guests.
Tip: You can paint one to your satisfaction and get it scanned before sending it to be mass printed. This will save you a lot of time and effort for your hundreds of guests.
