Drawing From Nature

Explore and capture the form, colour, textures and shapes of seasonal plants and flowers using a range of pens, pencils, inks and mark making tools in this fun and experimental workshop.


With seasonal plants and flowers as our inspiration, we’ll begin the day drawing from observation using found mark making tools to capture the main characteristics of our beautiful, natural subjects.


Gradually, we will hone-in on textures, colours and markings using coloured pencils and chalk pastels. This workshop is suitable for beginners and anyone wanting to develop their skills. Throughout the day we will explore a number of drawing techniques, for example line drawing, cross-hatching and shading. 


With top tips on tools and techniques you will gain confidence in your drawing, make new friends and have fun along the way!
