We are really excited to announce a full day workshop at River Cottage, in Axminster, Devon on Sunday 16th September.
Finding inspiration from the wonderful River Cottage gardens you will learn the fundamentals of watercolour as well as the key steps to painting any plant or flower. After a busy morning you will finish off the class with everyone painting a watercolour wreath choosing whichever plants and flowers they have enjoyed painting the most.
You will then enjoy a delicious River Cottage Lunch and the afternoon will be spent with an introduction to the Modern calligraphy trend. You will learn basic techniques with a dip pen nib and ink. From there you'll copy a lower and upper case alphabet, numbers and punctuation. You will learn about how to join up the letters to make words and phrases. We will finish off the class with each attendee creating a chosen phrase or quote in their own personal free style.
For all other workshops, please see below.
