Come along to this relaxing and supportive workshop with professional botanical and wildlife artist, Ruth Wharrier, looking at a range of botanical drawing and watercolour techniques.

The emphasis will be on botanical observation and 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 in Norfolk and Suffolk.

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.
