Autumn Leaves in Watercolour

Autumn Leaves in Watercolour


Saturday 2nd October

10am - 4:30pm

Westonbirt Arboretum

In this workshop we will embrace the autumn colours whilst learning the basics of watercolour illustration. You will have the chance to explore Westonbirt's historic woodland, collecting leaves, acorns and late flowers to record on paper, and take home a beautiful, painted card, as well as the confidence to start your watercolour journey.

Art and creativity is a fantastic way to incorporate nature into our lives and appreciate the changing seasons; there is no better place to immerse yourself in the autumn than the Arboretum and no better way to get a close up look at those famous colours than to paint them!

All materials are provided, however, if you have a bountiful harvest from your garden, feel free to bring along a collection of natural things that you're inspired to paint. This workshop includes admission to the arboretum.

Please wear suitable clothing and footwear for outdoor walking.

Additional Information:

Please note that dogs are not permitted in this class.

Attendees should be 16 or over, younger teenagers will be considered if accompanied by an adult, please get in touch.
