Details

WWT’s founder Sir Peter Scott enjoyed capturing the beauty of wildfowl and wetland landscapes through sketching and painting. Today, many artists and photographers are inspired by the result of his vision of a thriving urban wildlife habitat here at WWT London Wetland Centre. Come along to our workshop and learn some basic sketching techniques – all materials will be provided.

Artist Judith Gordon will begin the day with an introduction to drawing materials and basic techniques. She’ll provide photographs and some specimens for sketching, enabling you to focus on details such as the beautiful shapes and delicate colours and shading. During a one-hour break you’ll be able to purchase lunch in the Kingfisher Kitchen and also take the opportunity to explore the wildlife reserve to sketch some flora in situ.

In the afternoon you can choose a new subject to sketch to practice your new skills!
