The course is designed for beginners and provides an introduction to botanical art using pencil and watercolour as primary mediums. Plant material will be brought into the studio for the purpose of the lessons and participants will learn and develop skills in outline drawing, foreshortening, tonal work, basic colour work, paint application, and rendering surfaces.

The four-day workshop is a wonderful way to learn botanical art techniques and principles, creating your own botanical illustrations!

Botanical artist Mali Moir will conduct the workshops. Mali teaches botanical illustration and has won numerous awards, including the Gold Medal by The Royal Horticultural Society. She has exhibited internationally and has produced many works for private, public and corporate collections. For more information about Mali and to see a gallery of her works visit her website here.
