Gauche Workshop with 1Canoe2

This past weekend, we were thrilled to host a pair of fabulous gauche painting workshops with shop-favorite vendor, 1Canoe2. For two hours, participants joined Haley from 1Canoe2 for a beginner class all about gauche painting in 1Canoe2’s signature breezy style.

Haley led the group through several exercises and everyone left with some beautiful paintings and their own set of paint & brushes. Add some sweet sips & snacks and it was a perfect event. Thanks to everyone who came and made the events such successes!
