Petite Posy Of kindness

Petite Posy of Kindness - Vida Flores  Auckland

Saturday May 4th  1 - 3pm


This class is a great Mother's Day treat!!  Bring your cherished Mum along to enjoy a very special and creative feel-good day.

Emma Prill has exhibited her gorgeous botanical collages, both nationally and internationally.  Her largest work to date being her 2018-2019 installation 'Colourfield' which was an immersive large scale garden, made entirely from canvas and cardboard.  This work took over the main atrium of Tauranga Art Gallery, giving a sense that you had just walked into a gigantic botanical wonderland.
Join artist Emma Prill for an inspirational mixed media and colour-rich workshop, all for a wonderful cause.  Emma joins Vida Flores to raise money for Sweet Louise, a charity set up to help those diagnosed with incurable breast cancer.  Sweet Louise brings emotional support and practical services to its Members.  It is a charity Vida Flores has worked with often over the years, and we are passionate about what they do.  Sweet Louise provides its Members with uplifting experiences, practical assistance, treatment strategies, family support, and so much more, and this is all offered for free.  We applaud Sweet Louise, and all the kindness it spreads.
In this workshop, you will paint your own pieces of canvas, before cutting them into forms using various botanical references.  Arrange your colourful parts onto your hand painted board, to create your own unique petite posy collage.  Complete your artwork by adding Emma's very own French gouache and oil pastels, giving detail and layering. 
 You will also contribute some of your floral forms to a larger-scale collage being put together by Emma for Sweet Louise.  This artwork will be auctioned off at the Sweet Louise Belle Boutique fundraiser being held on October 24th.  All proceeds from the artwork's auction will be going to Sweet Louise.  A collage of kindness, if you will.  We cant thank Emma Prill enough for giving her time to this gorgeous project.
Suitable for all - from complete beginners to those with experience.

Art Workshops


Art Workshop’s. Emma has a warm, nurturing and inspiring approach to her teaching. She encourages each individual to find their own creative voice. Emma is continuously creating new workshops where new materials and processes are demonstrated and variety of materials are explored.

Emma is an organised teacher; her workshops are well prepared and offer clear instructions to the range of processes and techniques she teaches. The workshops offer a relaxed environment where everyone, regardless of previous creative experience, will learn something new. Emma provides quality materials for her workshops.

I recently went on Emma Prill's two day Dynamics of Colour workshop. I was a bit nervous because I thought I might not be good enough but found the whole experience both uplifting and affirming. The whole workshop was supportive, friendly and welcoming.

The motivation was thoughtful and sincere and everyone worked on a number of projects at their own pace with as much or as little input as they wished. Emma was friendly, relaxed, well organised and motivating. I would LOVE to attend another one as I got so much out of it.
