Then we 'grow up', get jobs, wear suits, commute in a big city and get on with our daily lives . . .
Life gets a little grey. . . It feels like something got lost along the way . . .
Our mission is to bring back that playful, fun, colourful side of you! The part that doesn't care so much what others think!
The part that's wild and joyful and free!
This is what our messy workshops are all about.
What we do
We are passionate about playing with paint!
We run messy paint-filled events!

What to bring
Water soluble paints will be used but do bring along old clothes to wear, so you don’t mind getting messy - although these are the 'friendliest' paints possible they can leave some stains on clothes. The best option is to wear old clothes you'd like to 'upcycle' with colour!
White or light coloured clothes will make you most colourful
Goggles and shower hats welcome!
Do get in touch if you have any questions.
We believe that there's potential for much more aliveness, wildness, passion, play and most of all - Fun in our lives!
Colour the City is a fun and safe space for you to play and explore what a wilder, more colourful life could mean to you.
We'll get messy! We'll get a bit wild. We'll banish the grey!
And you'll come away energised, inspired and more alive!

Loving people and paint!
I'm Debbie Warrener and I've been working to help people unleash their inner 'wildness' for seven years.
I'm an experienced international trainer and coach passionate about helping people shine brightly and colourfully in the world.
Colour the City combines my twin passions of people and paint. I love creating fun, inspiring experiences themed around connection and self expression!
I'm also an artist and recently held my second solo London show ‘WiLD and True’ at Hive Dalston.
This video shot at my last exhibition - in October 2016 - is about my passion for what I call 'Living WiLD and True'. This is what Colour the City is all about!
Let's Colour the City together! Come along and colourfully play!
