Watercolour painting & floral arrangement day - a combined full day workshop
A wonderful relaxing day of creativity. Time to bring a bit of nature into the home with these two calm and creative hobbies. Both of which offer a contemplative practise, with many moments of stillness and mindfulness. Morning with florist tutor Pat Patty We will start the day in the hands of Pat were you will be creating your very own beautiful floral arrangement, using seasonal flowers and foliage...just perfect for you to take home and display or give away as a gift. Lunch time break: Please bring your own food. Wanstead House do have a cafe which offers a small selection of tea, coffee and biscuits. A lovely garden too in good weather for a picnic. Afternoon with artist tutor Brenda Coyle After a short lunch we will gather again to create some stunning watercolour art inspired by our morning flower designs. There will be lots of demonstrations for you to follow and have fun experimenting. Your final piece of art will be mounted for you to display at home or prepared ready to send to a special friend.

As a freelance artist for over 20 years, I still work within the learning departments of many London based Museums and Galleries, schools, and charities, from the V&A to the Museum of London, AgeUK to Thomas Pocklington Trust supporting blind and partially sighted students. I develop, design and create various art based classes, workshops and courses. In the last 7 years I have also been running my own private Watercolour Courses - these run one day a week at Wanstead House E11...and since all the lockdowns I have also managed to squeeze in a wonderful Tuesday morning online class too!
