Come and join Becki at Rawberry, Winchester for a creative morning exploring botanical painting. All materials are included and you will be able to take home your painting set, sketchbook and brushes.
Becki will introduce the materials you’ll be working with and will begin with talking about colour palettes before working through mixing colours to create your own collection of colour palettes to work with through the session.
Becki will then show how simple brush strokes can make up botanical motifs
You will work through some simple motif shapes with encouragement to explore how shapes can make your own florals and foliage
You will also explore paint washes and working with ink to create simple botanical illustrations. Becki will be on hand with lots of tips and guidance as you work through the guide sheets and you should start to feel more confident with the brush and developing your own painting style.
You will work towards creating your own floral painting to take home
This workshop is suitable for complete beginners and you will be able to take home your guide sheets so you can continue to practice.

A super relaxing, therapeutic and skilful day led by the exceptionally talented, kind and ridiculously patient, Becki. I was lucky enough to attend one of the first of these workshops and I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to have some fun, learn a new skill or hone some existing skills, do something different with a family or friend or someone in need of some much needed brain-TLC.
This course was amazing! Becki is so skilled and knowledgeable and really makes you feel comfortable. She was very professional, friendly and encouraging and I was so happy and proud of the bits I created (with a bit of help from her). Since this course, I have realised I have found a new hobby and have continued to paint for fun. Would highly recommend this course.
Thank you Becki!
I stumbled across this course through craftcourses.com and booked it as it looked like it would be fun and was local - but it really exceeded my expectations. Becki provides absolutely everything required - including fabulous chocolate brownies from Rawberry (the cafe it’s held in). Group size was small enough for everyone to get any help needed, but large enough to feel nicely social. Becki provides very clear basic instructions, but encouraged everyone to use their own ideas and style to make unique pieces - so whether you are a complete beginner or a keen crafter you will come out with something to be proud of. I haven’t painted in years, but now I won’t be able to stop! Can’t wait for the next course.
A really wonderful workshop run by a very talented young lady. I went with my sister and we really enjoyed our day. I left feeling able to recreate at home what I had learned during the workshop thanks to Becki's step by step guide and expert ability to teach. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a crafty day out.
Another fabulous workshop with Becki. I really enjoyed this one; I hadn't painted in years but, with Becki's patience and guidance, I managed to produce some very acceptable botanical paintings. Becki is very thoughtful and inspiring; I thoroughly recommend this workshop.
