Tutor - Janet Haigh

1-day workshop

Saturday 10 Sept 2022, 10.30am - 4.30pm

This class will be taking place in person at Court House Farm, 3 Church Road South, Portishead, Bristol, BS20 6PU

Draw colour studies of both individual stems and small tied bunches of seasonal flowers and leaves from the cutting garden at Court House Farm, artfully arranged by owner of the property, Helen Reed. Artist-tutor, Janet Haigh, will show her sketchbook of flower studies developed over many years, and discuss the ways that flower sketches have informed new directions in her work.

Crayons, ink pencils, chalk pencils and pastel will be provided, though you will need to bring a sketchbook, and are welcome to bring any of your own preferred drawing media.

Participants will be walking around the grounds and flower gardens, so please wear weather appropriate clothing and sensible footwear. Unfortunately some of the terrain at Court House Farm is uneven and not suitable for wheelchair or rollator access.
