Stencilling Mackintosh – 2nd/3rd April 2016

What better place than The House for an Art Lover to come and learn from scratch the art of Stencilling and learn how to introduce Glasgow Style in your interior.

Built in the 1990’s from the original plans of Charles Rennie Mackintosh from the turn of the century HAL is a beautiful property open to the public in the middle of Belahouston Park in Glasgow. A team of artists, craftsmen, architects and the Glasgow School of Arts teamed up to realise this amazing project.

 It is today open to the public and beside the Mackintosh rooms it offers a delightful cafe, a beautiful walled garden and more importantly … The Art Park a complex of exhibition room, visitor’s centre and two lovely studios with window on the park. There I run evening and week end workshops in traditional Victorian crafts.

For the first week end of April we will learn the ropes of stencilling like turn of the century craftsmen and painters. We will design a stencil, learn to apply it to wall, furniture and fabric. We will use traditional material and several types of paint. But also we will take a minute to view the magical stencilled schemes of The House for an Art Lover. Re-created from Mackintoh’s drawings and some of his existing schemes they are a great example of Glasgow Style stencilling. I was lucky to be able to stencil part of that scheme and I will answer any questions on the realisation of it.

The class runs both Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 4pm with a break at lunchtime where a delicious but simple lunch will be brought in from The House for an Art Lover’s kitchen. The cost is £110/person inclusive of all material and the lunches.

To book please contact The House for an Art Lover but if you have any questions email me directly @

Hope to see you there.
