Starry Night Watercolour Workshop | My Site (

A watercolour workshop to celebrate and explore a starry, starry night as part of the North York Moors Dark Skies Festival. 

This watercolour workshop is suitable for all levels, from absolute beginners to anyone wanting to learn new techniques. No drawing skills are needed.  The focus of the workshop is on fun and exploration, for you to enjoy some mindful time to meet like-minded people, and to create and play with colour and paint. 

Using the wonderful dark skies of the North York Moors National Park as your inspiration, you’ll create two night skyscapes to take home with you. You will be led step by step by Ione to create the paintings, but if you have a particular place you would like to base a painting on, then please do bring a reference photo.

Using a limited but vibrant palette, you’ll explore a couple of easy to use techniques (cling film, spatter, masking fluid and wax resist) as well as practising more traditional washes and wet in wet painting.

All materials are provided, so there is no need to bring anything, except perhaps an apron and something to take your lovely paintings home in. Refreshments will be available.
