If you still want to attend this class, please first consider government restrictions in VIC. If you are currently allowed to attend, but are later prevented from doing so, we will postpone your booking accordingly. You are always welcome to gift this class.

This workshop will cover the bases of what botanical illustration is and why it’s such an awesome art form. We’ll cover some observational drawing and watercolour techniques, as well as some tips on how to capture your botanical on paper. We’ll discuss compositions, line, shading, layering to create depth and maintaining scientific accuracy. 

This will be a fun and creative workshop working with watercolours. You’ll walk away with your own illustration and some tips to go forth and paint all of the flowers, all of the time!

Please note: This class requires at least eight students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class.



Aside from this class, Work-Shop also has the following coming up:

The teacher was very encouraging.
I enjoyed being given the time to work on my painting without too much instruction (but support when I asked for it).
Learnt a lot in a very constructive/practical environment.

The teacher is very professional and friendly. I have learn to use water colour in painting leaf and flower. It was an enjoyable experience.

Liana was great! She gave an overview regarding materials, technique and demonstration of how to use watercolours - simple enough for beginners.
We were given two exercises which were both fun, but I felt a bit time poor considering the need to perfect one piece first!
Good class overall :)
