About the event

In this session, Attendees will be guided step by step by Richard in the use of painting knives.

Help us celebrate the life and memory of Amy around her birthday. You can have your work framed at an additional cost and proudly hang it on your wall, remembering and honouring the life of Amy Whinehouse.
