Is everyone looking forward to the Kent Jam 2015??
After two successful years, this will be the third Kent Jam hosted by my good friend Clare Jeffery of Cosmic Face Painting & Pampered Delights and Jules n Andy Feist of Crazy Face Painting.
It will be taking place at Larkfield Village Hall, New Hythe Lane, Aylesford, ME20 6PU. 9.30 – 3.30pm
For those of you who have never been to a jam before, it is great fun! You can bring a small kit and join in with the painting or go and have a nose around other peoples kits and get ideas and inspiration! There are traders there so that you can stock up on all the latest goodies, so make sure you bring some cash (or a credit card!) Retailers coming along include: Rainbow Faces, Façade, and the Face Painting Shop!
Everyone is very welcoming and no one will be left out, you can pick other artists brains and watch the various demonstrations, which will be happening throughout the day.
Demonstrations will include: Debz Mills showing her beautiful rose technique, Mandi Gabler doing Boys faces and Superheroes, Nicky Gardner will be showing One Stroke fast faces, Michelle Koopmans doing her outstanding henna designs, and Angela Youngs doing gore (of course!!), Jennifer Parker and Leonie Dack will also be demonstrating their skills and techniques. I will also be there, demoing eye designs. So it should be a great day!
There will be a body painting area for 6 body artists, so if you’ve never seen full body art in real life this will be a good opportunity, Five baby bumps will be being decorated as I understand, and henna tattoos on offer. Also beginners and “Frozen” Balloon modelling, and the opportunity to take the FACE test, or at least to find out more about the benefits of joining FACE if you are interested!
There will be all levels of experience at the jam, so if you are new (or old lol), please do come along, you will definitely learn, laugh and meet some lovely people!
Entry on the door is £5 or you can pre pay via paypal for a discounted £4 fee which also gets you a FREE raffle ticket! Children are welcome for £1 each, so don’t worry about offloading the kids! All proceeds will go to charities: Macmillan and K9 Rehoming.

Wednesday 23rd October 2013
In this relaxed informal class you will master the essential techniques required to achieve beautifully layered one stroke roses, pansies, cottage garden flowers and more exotic blooms. We will look at the building blocks for floral one stroke work, practising the basic shapes for petals and foliage before assembling the individual elements in larger eye and cheek, wrist and upper chest or shoulder pieces. We will paint ourselves and then each other, exploring composition and placement for the greatest effect. Double and multi dipping, layering, line work and ‘cutting in’ techniques will also be used to complement our one stroke creations.
Attendees should ideally have some face painting experience (not necessarily professionally) in order to benefit fully from the workshop.
Attendees are welcome to bring a few favourite one strokes, some line work black and white and some brushes, but all of these will be provided, so there is no need if this is not possible. Brierley will also provide one stroke hand-outs to take home. Attendees should wear dark comfortable clothing with short sleeves, or sleeves which can be rolled up.
Brierley Thorpe is a multi-award winning face painter and is the Paintopia 2013 Glitter Artist of the Year. She paints for a wide range of private and corporate events. Her work has featured in Kerrang! Magazine, and she was a featured artist in the summer 2013 issue of Illusion Magazine. Brierley has taught at the London School of Face Painting and runs small classes from her home in east London. She will be instructing at Paintopia 2014 and also at The UK Face and Body Painting Convention 2014. Keep an eye out for part one of Brierley’s one stroke article in the autumn issue of Illusion Magazine.
