Botanical Art Workshop - Summer Flowers


During this 2-day workshop, through structured guidance and demonstrations you will learn how to depict, in watercolour, the glorious and vibrant colours of these beautiful summer blooms from the Gardens.

Taking your inspiration from a plethora of cutflowers from the Pickery, Dawn Wright, your expert tutor will take you through the basic techniques and materials for creating botanical watercolours. Topics will include accurate drawing, creating form and depth and mixing delicate washes for lights and darks.

Dawn will constructively critique your work at the end of the two days and give helpful hints and tips on how to continue your piece at home.

"First class, I have really enjoyed the two days and would highly recommend it."
