Instructor: Fathima Kathrada
"After over ten years in the creative industry and over six years working with illustration and hand lettering, I'm excited to be able to share the skills I've gained and crafted with others who'd like to be able to create beautiful things, while bringing people together for an inspiring experience. "

Q: Do I need to have any prior experience or skills for this?
A: Nope! Beginners are so welcome, many people who've attended in the past have never picked up a brush and still created beautiful pieces :)

Q: Is it suitable for my child?
A: I'd say it's suitable for about 14+
