FAIRS // Program during KreaDoe
The largest creative event in the Netherlands starts next week. Where I used to go to the KreaDoe, I now go there myself with Splendith. And not with a small stand, it will really be a pop-up shop from Splendith. I can unpack for five days, right? ;) I'm bringing a lot of materials from the shop, but there are also fun workshops (by PaperDen, ElleAime and Gouden Lijntjes) to follow and demos (Watch Calligraphy) to see at my stand. More about that later in this blog.
We can be found at stand: 18E015&18E019
From Wednesday to Saturday Joyce Aka Kijk Calligraphy gives demos of modern calligraphy. Would you like to come visit during these days? Have your name written for free with her wonderful skills.
Please note that not all workshops can be attended on all days.
Wednesday + Thursday by Lisa from Elle Aime
During this mini workshop Illustrating with watercolor you will learn the basics of working with watercolor. Learn the properties of this material, how you can work with it and what exercises you can do to get to know the material better. Watercolor is a very nice and playful material, you can paint very beautiful backgrounds and textures with it, but the very fine work can also be done with watercolor.
During this mini workshop Illustrating with gouache you will learn the basics of working with gouache. Learn the properties of this material, how you can work with it and what exercises you can do to get to know the material better. Gouache is an opaque water-based paint and you can make the most beautiful things with it! The paint dries matte and you can mix all the colors of the rainbow with it. If you like to illustrate or paint and you have never done anything with gouache: it is highly recommended!

Ecoline brush pens are very popular, especially for hand lettering. But, did you know that you can also draw and paint very beautifully? After all, Ecoline is ready-to-use watercolor paint. In this workshop you will learn to work with brush pens in combination with water and a brush. We add details with fineliners and a white gel pen. Drawing experience is not necessary. We work step by step using guidelines and examples for inspiration. Participants go home with an A4 size drawing. You can choose from a hare, giraffe, deer or fox.

Working efficiently and stimulating your creativity at the same time: who wouldn't want that? Everything is possible in a bullet journal. During this workshop you will learn about the basic system of bullet journaling, after which we will create your ideal weekly plan together. A perfect start to your new creative week! Register quickly: there is limited space and full = full!
By: Anne van Gouden Lijntjes
Workshop duration: 45-60 minutes
What you get to take home: a beautiful A5 notebook from Rhodia in which you can practice!
You don't have to bring anything with you, and no basic knowledge is required.
Because it is such a big fair, I am also nervous about how it will all go! If I have purchased enough, I still take extra cupboards with me and so on. Last minute I got some ideas for a nice 'bar' for the demos, extra cabinets so I could take more stuff with me. And last minute: I only signed up for the KreaDoe six weeks ago. On Monday I will pack the last things myself and then the assembly will start on Tuesday! Exciting!
Will I see you there?
