Come and experience the delights of the early spring garden and learn new techniques to further your skills of botanical art in our six week course.

This will be led by Rachael Dawson, a highly experienced botanical artist herself. Rachael trained at The English Gardening school at Chelsea Physic Garden in London. With over 10 years experience, Rachael’s work is included in public and private collections including The Highgrove Florilegium and The Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation.

On this course, you will be able to try out a range of pencils, watercolour paints and papers to develop a selection of your studies into a beautifully observed portrait of spring.

All abilities welcome. Suitable for anyone who enjoys drawing and painting in detail. A variety of spring plants will be provided but students may also bring along their own choice to enhance their collection. A list of required equipment will be provided on booking.

Each workshop takes place on a Monday from 10am-1pm in the Barn. The course begins on February 12th and runs through to March 19th.

Please note: as of 30/01/18, this event is fully booked.
