Teaching my very first face painting workshop!!

Last month I taught my first ever workshop. I was invited to be 1 of 2 tutors at Face Paint BOOTCAMP – an incredible, intensive one day training session in Belfast, Northern Ireland, organised by Stacey Kilpatrick of S.A.K. Designs. 30 participants were divided into 2 groups for two back-to-back 3 hour workshops (with a lovely leisurely lunch in between!) It was an absolute honour and privilege to be ‘billed’ alongside the phenomenal Teresa Mullin.

Leading up to the workshop I was so so nervous! I’d never taught before and always dismissed it as something beyond my capabilities. Every time I thought about it I felt sick with nerves, terrified I’d be no good! BUT somehow I managed to ignore those voices of crippling self-doubt and I DID IT and I loved it!! The feedback given afterwards was amazing and unbelievably heart-warming (see below photos), proving that my nerves were totally unfounded. I couldn’t have hoped for a more wonderful, positive first experience of teaching :D

ONE STROKE for ONE MONTH – Days 28-30

And so it is done!! 30 days of one stroke painting, spread over about 60 days:/ whoops! But I completed my challenge, despite losing inspiration several times, teaching my first workshop (!) and having some kind of RSI in my ‘hyper-mobile’ wrist! It’s been way tougher than I thought it would be, but the sense of accomplishment is awesome. I’ve fallen in love with one stroke even more, finding it to be even more fabulous and versatile than I first thought. Here’s to more crazy self-challenges!
