Saturday 18th April // 10:30-12pm

Ema Frost is a very clever Kiwi Artist, whose illustrations and ceramic works sit in many of our countries best galleries, and whose products and merchandise sell in the most stylish design stores and gallery shops. Her style is enchanting - quirky, feminine and colourful, and clearly influenced by her travels throughout the world, usually off the beaten track. Ema is inspired by the mystery and magic found in Japanese and Maori Folklore, and this influence can be seen throughout her captivating and detailed images.

Ema will show you how to work from a basic concept design, and using shapes and shadows, you will work your way to the finished product. Ema will guide you through the techniques and materials she uses in doing her own illustration and sketch work.

  • 1.5 hours of fun and learning with Ema Frost guiding you every step of the way
  • You'll leave with wonderful finished work, plus your new skills in sketching & gold leafing.

This class is not just for budding or accomplished artists. It is for everyone to enjoy a relaxing morning of art and design with Ema.
