29 APRIL - 1 MAY 2011

Catherine Christie's alchemy on canvas pieces have earned her international reputation, and her distinctive paintings grace collections and exhibitions locally and abroad. Now, a few lucky artists get a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to learn Catherine's painting technique alongside the artist herself on a weekend workshop at The Hout Bay Manor in Hout Bay. Over the weekend you’ll learn unique paint techniques that will have you quickly creating some great pieces to take home with you all the while indulging your soul!

"Whatever your intention for this magical collusion of creative energy amongst us all of us together produces, it will be beautiful and life changing. Wether your intention is a new career, to feed your soul, meet inspiring artists, learn to paint, see all my techniques or just spoil yourself and have fun - you will achieve just that." Love Catherine

November 2010 Paint To Life Workshop “I’d just like to express my sincerest thanks to Catherine and to Elle Decor for such an inspirational weekend! Having always tended towards more figurative painting in my own work, I found Catherine’s process to be a real eye opener - it has completely changed my perspective on which direction my work should take. I came away not only with a refreshing new range of techniques at my fingertips but also, more importantly in some ways, with a renewed sense of vigour and excitement about painting as a career... I thoroughly recommend Catherine’s course to artists of all levels; her passion, care and commitment are truly exemplary.” - Kelly Wear “Highly inspirational! Catherine is a paint technique-fundi with a keen design eye. I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop beyond expectation.” - Leonie Pentz
