Wildlearning - Botanical & Wildlife Painting - 2 September

02 September 2017, 10:00 - 15:00 (Add to calendar)

Join professional botanical and natural history artist, Ruth Wharrier, on this enjoyable and supportive workshop looking at a range of botanical drawing and watercolour techniques. The emphasis will be on botanical & wildlife observation, accuracy and seasonal plant material.

All abilities will be catered for with individual tuition. Ruth is a very experienced tutor who has run many successful workshops for us. The centre at Carlton Mashes offers an inspiring setting with enviable views out across the marshes and reed beds. For botanists, Carlton Marshes is one of the very best places in Suffolk for the sheer variety of plants.

Ruth studied Botanical Illustration at The Chelsea Physic Garden, London. She exhibits widely and examples of her natural history illustrations can be seen on the tourist information boards on Pakefield Cliff, Suffolk. Ruth paints in watercolour on paper, vellum and wood. She also creates etchings and works in pen and ink. Ruth is regularly commissioned to decorate harpsichords, for international clients, with flora and fauna using historical painting techniques.
