Botanical Illustrations Workshop

Botanical Illustrations Workshop
Back by popular demand, we are running two Botanical Illustration Courses, with Bridget Gillespie.
Botanical Illustration is the art of depicting plant forms accurately, to capture their individual characteristics and to aid identification. This 3-day workshop will be in a step-by-step format, with demonstration and individual tuition from Bridget covering drawing, composition and watercolour techniques. Suitable for complete beginners to intermediate painters. Materials are not included.

Bridget Gillespie is an award-winning Botanical Illustrator. In 2002, 2008, 2017 and 2018 she was awarded Gold Medals by the RHS who have purchased several pieces for their archive collection. Bridget has works in the RHS, Hunt Institute collections and illustrated The Northern Pomona.
