Class: Painting Flowers in Watercolour

With Emma Leyfield

Loading Events

Tutor: Emma Leyfield

Ability level: All

Price: £75 per person

Location: Main Hall

This workshop is a day dedicated to the beautiful art of painting flowers.

We will cover the basics of botanical illustration, watercolours and observational drawing in a room full of blooms. After lunch, you will put your newly learned skills to use and create a watercolour “standing” card or artist’s book of your choosing.

At the end of the day you will have your own piece of artwork to take home knowing all you need to get started in the world of watercolour.

Lunch is not provided but there is a cafe in the main building and a £5 voucher is included for tea, cake and coffee.

All materials (and flowers!) provided. However if your garden is overflowing with autumnal blooms that you would like to paint, or you have art supplies you’d like to test, feel free to bring them along.

Suitable for all levels of ability.

About your tutor

emma leyfield

Emma is a freelance illustrator with a love of watercolour, and came to illustration after studying fine art for four years before taking up daily sketch-booking as a form of physiotherapy.

This experience entirely changed her style and perspective on the simple enjoyment of creating pictures to tell as story.

Coupled with Emma’s love of books, the direction that this took her was inevitable and just like that, she ended up pursuing the dream job of her childhood; designing picture books.

This latest workshop is part of an ongoing exploration into life’s simple pleasures.
