Learn everything you need to know about Pastel Pencils to get you started with this incredibly fun and colour-packed medium. 

I'll talk talk you through all the basics, including what pastels are, how they're different to colour pencils, the best surfaces, sharpeners and loads more!

In this 2-hour recorded online workshop, you'll be able to work alongside me as I complete almost the entirety of this beautifully bright Iris, talking you through each step with helpful hints along the way, leaving you one final petal to do on your own with what you've learned.


Suitable for anyone wanting to try Pastel Pencils for the first time, or reconnect with the medium after a long time away.
