10am – 4pm

£30 for members, £35 for non members

Email Gill at: kagworkshopbooking@gmail.com to book on.

Information from Kathryn:

Learn how to paint fruit and vegetables in watercolour, in a botanical style.  In the morning we will paint a single pear, and in the afternoon, you can progress to either another single item or a group of items.  I will bring enough pears for everyone to have one, and a selection of other fruit and veg.  If you would like to bring your own, then please avoid anything too complicated such as a pineapple or cauliflower, especially if you are a beginner. 

You will need: watercolour paper 300gsm or 425gsm (no smaller than A4 for the single pear, and a larger piece if you wish to do a group of fruit), a selection of watercolour paints, palette, waterpots, pencil and putty rubber, watercolour brushes (suggested sizes 8, 4 and 1), kitchen paper and some scraps of watercolour paper to try out your colours.
