This painting class is ideal if you've never tried to draw before, or if you already have some painting skills. You'll learn to paint beautiful botanical flora and bring in some beautiful vibrancy by colouring and simply adding water!

Your teacher, practising botanical artist Tania Daymond, will guide you through a series of enjoyable exercises to help you develop your skills and confidence. You'll warm up in the morning with some simple pieces to help you learn how to observe, paint and colour.

Expressing your new artistic abilities, you'll progress after lunch to work on your main botanical painting. Painting is a mindful and relaxing activity and with the support of your teacher, you'll soon feel fully involved in your art.

By the end of your painting and watercolour class, you'll have a stunning piece of your own botanical art to take home.

If you are interested in just learning the basics why not try the three-hour mini morning class watercolour drawing class for beginners.

Tania has been drawing since she was a little girl. Always dragging around a bag of coloured pencils and paper.

As an adult, she completed a Diploma in Art Education and then Fashion Design. After a successful career in both, she is now a qualified art teacher and practising botanical artist. Tania's amazing botanical art is all hand-drawn with a fountain pen and the blackest ink on archival rag paper.

Tania loves sharing her creative botanical passion with others. It doesn't matter if you have never picked up a pencil before or if you already have some drawing skills - Tania's classes are perfect for anyone who wants to share in the joy, fun and delight of learning to draw botanical flora.

Miss Daymond Designs has the best art class I have ever been too, and I have been doing art my whole life. Miss Daymond Designs is an amazing teacher and I have learnt so much in just the one day.
All the meterials for the class were provided and at an extent quality. Not only that but the supplies are all easily accessible after the class too as we were all told exactly where to get them and they are inexpensive.
This class was very good value. And by the end of it we all had the skills to complete a beautiful botanical piece.
If you would like to learn how all about the techniques of water colour then I highly recommend this course to you! You will enjoy it and leave with all you need to continue your learning and journey of making watercolour master pieces!

Great day spent learning watercolour techniques and tips in a chilled setting with all the necessary tools provided. Tania is a very good teacher and although I’ve dabbled with the medium for many years, I’ve learned more in one day than I have in many years of reading books and watching videos. Well worth the time and a great way to spend a Saturday :)

Great teacher, very friendly and relaxed day. The hours just slipped away would definitely recommend Tania as a teacher and I was very happy with my piece of artwork

Gabby Csohany May 2021

Beautiful workshop. As someone who has never worked with water colours, before but has always wanted to try, this was a perfect class to introduce myself to the medium.
Tania is highly knowledgeable in regards to not only the art, but the tools to be able to create work at home. She is warm and friendly and is able to provide her knowledge on a level that myself, a beginner, would understand. I think everyone who attended on the day said that they would seek out more of her workshops. 10/10.

A very enjoyable and positive experience even for absolute beginners ! (Like me).
Tania is warm and encouraging and has a very effective way of offering “warm up” practices that incrementally build up confidence and skill. She offers lots of ideas and suggestions for continuing with the learning and practice when you leave, and for inexpensive supplies, so that anyone can have a creative outlet. Highly recommended.

Such an enjoyable class. Tania has a genuine warmth that welcomes you and makes you feel at ease ready to paint. A friendly, relaxing class with great guidance and imparting of knowledge. I had not completed an art class since high school days (quite a long time ago) but found this style of art easy to pick up and Tania instils confidence that you can do it. Tania keeps you on track to ensure you have much of your piece easily completed before the days end. I can't wait to continue adding finishing touches to the protea I painted at home and I look forward to continue practicing my skills. I recommend this class for individuals or a group and look forward to completing more classes.
