You’ll make your way to my home which is less than 10 minutes from the Queenstown Central Hub / Five Mile Shopping area. There we will spend 3 hours learning basic watercolour techniques. You will use your new skills to create a gift tag, bookmark, greeting card or small picture that you can take away at the end of the hands on experience.
Hello (Kia Ora) from Deb - founder of Quillify Studio, a Modern Calligraphy and small art business in Queenstown, New Zealand. Originally from the UK, I spent 8 years in Australia before settling in wonderful New Zealand. As a career educator I have taught many students from Primary level through to Adult education. I love teaching people of all ages & since moving to New Zealand a few years ago I’ve been able to spend more time as a creative. When I’m in my studio, I’m usually creating calligraphy orders using a dip pen with ink, brush pens, watercolour or digital calligraphy on my iPad Pro. I also spend quite a lot of time working with watercolours and other creative projects.
