Details

Improve your artwork with this practical two-day workshop on the structure of plants

This two-day course is perfect for botanical artists who want to know more about their subjects.

The practical sessions will demonstrate how the study of a plant can be a fascinating journey of discovery, informing your artwork by helping you to understand a plant's structure and how it works. Botany will become an integral part of the excitement of producing botanical illustrations.

The emphasis will be on practical botanical work. There will also be an opportunity to do some drawing, so please bring sketchbooks and pencils.
