Botanical Drawing

This weekend we ran a Botanical drawing workshop with award winning botanical artist Julia Trickey.

It was a very intense two days of concentration leaving many exhausted but happy with the results.

"Plenty of variety and opportunities to learn different techniques. Great to have the materials, pens and pencils provided."
"Very enjoyable"
"Really would like to have longer, this felt like a taster!"

"Lovely place thank you"
"A really good 2 days – and a very pleasant environment"

There will be more workshops from Julia Trickey in the Autumn term.

Autumn Exhibition #1

We are really happy to have secured Duncan Cameron for a solo show this coming September.

An opportunity to explore the world of this artist and collector, his drawings and his cabinets of curiosity, each encapsulating a particular time, place and journey.

Anyone who was lucky to catch his show last year at the Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institution knows that they are in for a treat!
