Unwind and explore your creativity in this immersive full day workshop, blending the art of flower arranging and watercolour painting. We will begin with a mindful walk through Micklems Farm’s cutting garden. You will be invited to hand pick a posy of seasonal blooms and vibrant greenery to work from during the workshop. Returning to the spacious barn workshop, you will create a simple yet captivating floral arrangement using your selection. After a short break with drinks and refreshments, local illustrator Helen Ridley will guide you through a watercolour painting workshop. Finding inspiration in your personal floral arrangement you will explore mixing colour palettes and sketching colour and form. Helen will demonstrate a range of watercolour techniques, which you will then have the opportunity to practice and refine. You will leave with an A4 watercolour composition inspired by your unique posy of flowers. Embrace a day of creativity, mindfulness and floral appreciation. Book your space today!
