About the Course
Join Watercolour Artist Mary-Clare Cornwallis at a local Flower farm in Dumfries & Galloway, South West Scotland for a relaxing day painting with her expert guidance.
The wildlife-rich flower farm is normally closed to the public so this is a rare opportunity to paint a wide variety of seasonal flowers. There are traditional cutting garden favourites plus many varieties rarely seen in the supermarket or high street florist.
These workshops are suitable for all experience levels, including complete beginners.
Mary-Clare is very experienced teaching watercolour techniques. The group will be small (maximum 6) so you'll have plenty of opportunity to ask your questions.
There are 4 workshop dates scheduled in 2020 - come along on your preferred date or on all 4. Different flowers bloom with the changing seasons.
Duration; 10am - 4pm
You'll be welcomed on arrival by Rosie Gray & Ken Leslie of Galloway Flowers.
