Saturdays 19th March, 2nd July and 24th September

Starting by making line drawings of plants in the garden using simple materials, as the day progresses we will naturally and easily move towards creating responses using tone and colour. Basic drawing materials and other resources, sensitive tuition and practical advice from a very experienced tutor will be provided, through which you will be able to gain confidence in exploring ways of attuning to the unique environment of this very special place….
