Art At The Garden


Join us for workshops with the professional artist Rebecca Cartwright de Fontenelle.

Enjoy and take inspiration from the peaceful oasis of the garden while Rebecca takes you through the techniques of botanical drawing and fine art in February or practicing mindfulness techniques while developing your own artistic style in time for Stress Awareness Month in April.

Take technique you can practice at home and create your own drawing to give as a gift or put on display.

We will be providing paper, drawing materials and pigments to make water-based tempera drawings but please feel free to bring your own materials if you want to do any oil painting.
