I will be hosting two brush lettering workshops at the Budleigh Salterton Literary Festival on Friday 20th September at 9am and 2pm. Brush lettering is the chaotic cousin of modern calligraphy; a hugely fun new skill to learn and brilliant for beginners. You will learn how to use different brushes, develop your own style of alphabet and put words and phrases together onto a page to create gorgeous artworks. We will also experiment with colour and metallics!
I will be hosting two drop in watercolour masterclasses at the River Cottage Festival this August Bank Holiday (24th-25th) weekend : Watercolour for Beginners is a fun filled class of painted cocktail blending (yes, really!) perfect for complete beginners. Watercolour Botanicals is a simplified version of my sold out full day course at River Cottage where you learn the fundamentals of painting plants and flowers in my new botanical style.version
I am thrilled to be teaching full day watercolour botanical classes down at the River Cottage this year. There are three dates to choose from: 28th September 2019, 9th November 2019, 8th February 2020. All in the inspiring setting of Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall's River Cottage. You will be treated to a delicious lunch cooked by the RC chefs as well as being plied with wonderful refreshments throughout the day.
I will be teaching a Saturday morning watercolour botanical class down at the Reconomy Centre in Totnes with Me and East. This is a one-off class on 3rd August at 10:30am - 1pm. Taking inspiration from seasonal blooms as you learn how to paint flowers and foliage in the new botanical style. You will start with the fundamentals of watercolour as well as understanding the key steps to painting any plant or flower. You will finish off the class painting a watercolour wreath choosing whichever plants and flowers you have enjoyed painting the most.
