With Linda Hampson Member of the SW Society of Botanical Artists

Coloured pencil is a marvellously versatile medium. We will work with Faber Castell Polychromo pencils. It is genuinely an easy medium to master and so I invite you to join me for a series of six workshops. You will learn how to layer and blend and various other ‘tricks’ and techniques. Beginners and improvers welcome.

Other useful details ...

Courses run 10am – 4pm, we will be glad to welcome you for coffee from 9.45am.

A selection of teas, coffee and soft drinks are inclusive and served throughout the day.

Lunch is served as a ‘bring and share’ sit down buffet, please bring a small plate of food to share, or lunch can be provided by pre-booking at a cost of £5.

Each course has a detailed requirements list so you know if there is anything in particular you will need to bring or wear. We try and keep this minimal and supply most of what you need, but we know that people also like to bring thier own ‘kit’ if they have it. Please ensure you read your list carefully and do ask if there is anything that isnt clear!

We also offer 4* B&B accommodation please enquire or see our course accommodation page full details – it is worth noting that during course times we only have attendees staying here so our accommodation is not available through the usual online system.

Printable directions and Google Map links to help you find The Old Kennels can be found here (sat nav will not bring you to the door as being rural the postcode area is quite large).
