Frequently Asked Questions

I don't feel creative, or I can't really draw or/ paint. Is this still something for me?

Definitely! Most of Unwindle's users don't have experience with drawing or painting. But everyone can paint with watercolor—we promise. Most beginners start with the Watercolor Beginners Course where you will be guided through all the basics and every video tutorial is set up for all levels. There is no “doing it wrong.” Take that step outside your comfort zone and try something new. Like Henri Matisse says: "Creativity takes courage." You can purchase the Watercolor Beginners Course separately, or become an Unwindle member, where the course is included!

What kind of creative activities does Unwindle offer?

Currently, most videos are created with watercolor paints, but you could use any medium that you already have. There are also drawing videos and more different types of creative activities will be added to Unwindle in the near future.

What kind of videos can I expect on Unwindle?

There are in general two types of videos:

  • Learn & Relax tutorials to learn a new technique and have fun
  • Creative Meditations when you just want your mind to relax and get in touch with your inner self. Often, these videos are a combination of drawing/painting with a Mindfulness theme.

Furthermore, we have the Watercolor Beginners Course included in the membership with 6 lessons to get you started with the basics of watercolor painting.

How much time do I need for Unwindle?

All the real-time videos on Unwindle are between 7 to 25 minutes per tutorial or creative meditation session. There are also short versions of every video, so you choose any video during the day based on how much time you would like to spend on your creative session and do everything at your own pace, whether that is on a daily basis, every week, or once a month - it's your creative me-time. The live workshops normally take 45-60 minutes and the live Q&As 30 minutes.

I don’t have (many) art materials, can I still join?

Definitely! You can already get started with pen and paper, but we do recommend you to purchase some painting materials, as most videos are recorded using watercolor paints. However, if you don’t have them yet, you can still follow many of the videos while using any type of art material (such as colored pencils, acrylic paints, pastels).

What specific materials can I buy?

To get started, you'll need a pen, paper and 3 basic painting materials as currently most of the videos on Unwindle are using watercolor painting.

Why using watercolor painting instead of other painting mediums?

Watercolor is soothing to watch and do, as you work with pigment and water and you’ll get to experience how the paint flows with the water. Furthermore, it is very compact, you need little space. And you won’t get dirty from painting with watercolors and it’s easy to wash out watercolor paint from your clothes.

Is there support or feedback available?

You can ask your questions or comments underneath every video and we will answer these as soon as possible. Furthermore, we have monthly live sessions where you can ask your questions and get feedback and Live Q&As to ask all of your questions.

How do I pay?

You can purchase your annual/monthly membership, a course, or workshop via our Shopify store where you can pay through various payment methods, such as Creditcard, PayPal, Google Pay, Apple Pay, iDeal, Bancontact.
