Level 1 Face Painting Workshop Newcastle upon Tyne

4th October 2017 @ 9:30 am - 2:30 pm

Level 1 Face Painting Workshop

Level 1 Face Painting Workshop Newcastle upon Tyne Re-run

Thank you so much to everyone who has shown support or interest in my workshops so far! Due to popular demand I am now putting out feelers for interest in a rerun of my Level 1 Face Painting Workshop to be held the first week in OCTOBER. Many people expressed that the first workshop was too much short notice, so I decided to organise another with more time to prepare.

One thing that I’ve noticed over the years is the lack of face painting classes in the North East. It’s brilliant when you can travel across the country to work with world-renowned artists, but that isn’t an option for everybody.

Beginners Face Painting WorkshopI am SO excited to be bringing the Level 1 Face Painting Workshop to you in Newcastle upon Tyne this year. I’ve designed this course specifically for newcomers to face painting, to get you off to an amazing start! Using my personal experience as a professional face painter, I’m saving you time and money by giving you all the ‘need-to-know’ info without you needing to go through all of the mistakes I made as a beginner face painter!

Invest in yourself, and start off on a high! Meet new people, learn new skills and most importantly have a blast doing it! Find out more about what you will get out of this course below!

The course lasts 5 hours on a single day between school times! Well behaved children are welcome to come along – we can set them up with some activities – just let me know prior to the event!

Starter Kit**: £120 additional

** An Optional basic set up can be pre-ordered for you to collect on the workshop. I don’t make any money on the starter kits. I will order some recommended start up products to give to you on the course to take away. This will include some good quality brushes, a paint palette, glitter, water spray bottle, brush soap, water pot and a pack of sponges – a receipt will be provided. Start Kit cost will be required up front. Alternatively, I can give you a shopping list of my favourite products on the course, so you can have a look for yourself 🙂

Face Painting is an expensive business to get into, but the more you invest, the more you get out of it in the long run. If you are planning on setting up in business, please remember that all training and equipment costs can be claimed as expenses in your tax return. You will make all of this money back within a few jobs.

Once you have booked onto the beginners face painting workshop, you will receive a confirmation email with all of the details here as well as payment information. You will also receive a reminder email before the event itself!
