Details

This 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 become an integral part of the excitement of producing botanical illustrations, informing your artwork by helping you understand its structure and how it works.

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