The first workshop I ran at The Barn on 20 September 2015 was a resounding success.

Attendees loved the ambience of The Barn, the 2015-09-20 14.39.29atmosphere of the workshop, the food and the opportunity to enjoy and explore their creativity in a relaxed fun environment with constructive guidance. As this was a spring workshop we took a walk through the wonderful heritage garden at Wairoa to glean inspiration  – this experience proved to be a very positive  and it was amazing to see how each person interpreted the garden in paint on their canvas.
