On a cold, blustery November evening, the On the Pebbles watercolour workshop provided a warm haven of creativity and conviviality.
The Next Door brasserie was a suitably-intimate space. It was a little crowded but this only contributed to the cosy, chatty atmosphere. Long tables were decked with paper, brushes and watercolour paints, along with bunches of dried flowers for inspiration. Novices and experts alike fully entered into the spirit of the event, producing a wide variety of artwork.
An unexpected twist to the evening was the artistically-themed drinks menu, offering cocktails such as ‘show me the monet’ and ‘get michelangelow’…
The whole evening was accompanied by live music from student musicians; the relaxed, acoustic tunes undoubtedly set the tone of the event and got everyone’s creative juices flowing. Caroline and Blaine sung sweet harmonies with perfect pitching, and Kai Hewitt’s set towards the end of the evening had people humming along to well-loved classics.
As 10pm came around, the room was still filled with relaxed and happy painters: it was clear that nobody wanted to leave. The event was once again testimony to the excellent organisation and creativity of the On the Rocks team. We are sincerely looking forward to what they come up with next!
