Workshops with Ema Frost

Workshops with Ema Frost at Quirky Fox

We are excited to announce that in November we will be holding the first of what we hope will be many workshops to come.

 

We have teamed up with Ema Frost to present two workshops: Illustration and Intro to Gilding and Kintsugi.

Ema Frost burst onto the Auckland art scene in 2010 and has been captivating her fans with her unique style ever since. Her bright colours to give life to beautiful images, the inspiration of which comes from Ema’s fascination and deep respect for the mystery and magic found in Maori and Japanese folklore. The often delicate and always delightful characters she creates are the perfect marriage of these mythical cultures. Part of the charm of her work is in the little idiosyncrasies that can be found only upon closer inspection of her images. Look carefully and you’ll see little characters peeking out from unsuspecting places and the omniscient Tiki watermark that protects all life in the world of her imagination.
