Friday 30 November

Time: 10.00-16.00

This is a taster workshop exploring the use of oil-based artist's pencils to create accurate depictions of the plant world. These pencils are easily blended and sharpened making them ideal for detailed work, without the need for water.

Holly and ivy with be our subject matter which could then be used to create seasonal artwork suitable for Christmas cards. According to experience, the initial drawing can either be done directly from the plants provided, or taken from a prepared drawing sheet.

Kay is a recent graduate from the Society of Botanical Artists.
