Roses in the Garden – Acrylics Workshop with Parastoo Ganjei
June 11 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Featured in Artists and Illustrators Magazine in October 2019, Parastoo Ganjei’s expressive flower paintings are gaining an ardent following.
Painting in the stunning private rose gardens of Springfield House in Broadway, in this one day workshop artists will explore the innate beauty of roses.
Roses are truly the queen of flowers and specially in June they are blooming brilliantly, especially in this amazing garden.
They grow everywhere, they poke through the hedgerows and climb up the walls.
Being inspired by our subject (roses) gives us the opportunity to paint inspirational and engaging paintings.
Parastoo will encourage students to have a fearless, spontaneous and passionate approach towards painting in general and at the same time help them with their observation skills and painting techniques.
This course will happily suits an absolute beginner to more experienced artist.
£85 per person (limited to 12 participants)
Lunch will be provided
Tickets go on sale to the general public through the website at 10am on Good Friday (April 10th 2020) and to Benefactors of the festival two weeks earlier.

“I was inspired to paint from an early age. I like to paint spontaneously, the speed and dynamism of my hand gestures designed to reflect the strong feelings that my subjects evoke within me. I paint with acrylic and brushes and occasionally a palette knife.
I like the quality of acrylic medium. It is quick drying and allows me to build up layers of paint and textures or add highlights where needed.
My work is being represented by many galleries around the country such as the Brian Sinfield Gallery in Cotswold and The Art Agency in Surrey.”
