‘An Introduction to Botanical Art’ with RHS Gold Medalist Ros Franklin FLS in the beautiful surroundings of Dormy House.

Come and explore the methods used in this traditional art form.
You will be shown how to draw accurately, and how to create three-dimensional form using continuous gradational tone in graphite.
You will also be introduced to the use of watercolours to depict your chosen subject in colour, taking away enough knowledge to complete your work at home, if necessary.

Suitable for beginners, and those with experience.

Ros Franklin has been teaching botanical art since 2008 through workshops at her studio in Hampshire and also at the Eden Project, Cornwall; for the RHS at Rosemoor in Devon; and for Field Breaks in Derbyshire. She has also taught on the SBA residential course, in Wales; at The Mall Galleries, London; and has hosted workshops around the UK for various Botanical Art Societies including Bath, Gloucester and SWSBA.

She has exhibited internationally and was made a Fellow Member of the Society of Botanical Artists in November 2018.

We are delighted that Ros is able to join us for what promises to be a very special day at a wonderful location. A wander around the grounds may provide you with just the inspiration you need!

The workshop is hosted and kindly sponsored by Dormy House Hotel in the stunning Back Garden light and airy room with access to the kitchen gardens.

Tickets £85 to include a light lunch and refreshments.
Limited to 12 participants
