Breaking New Ground

Reconnecting People with The Brecks

Erodium (Isobel Bartholomew)

Breckland Flora Art Workshops Return

We're excited to annouce a new series of botanical art workshops coming up this summer! You will learn to paint and draw Breckland plants with an expert talk accompanying each workshop. Over the past few years the watercolour workshops with the Iceni Botanical Artists have been extremely popular and these will build up on that success, but offer even more options - with colour pencil and graphite tutoring as well as watercolour.

Colour pencil drawing and painting materials are provided. Just bring your lunch, a notebook and a mug. No previous experience required!  The workshop tutors are members of the Iceni Botanical Artists.
