Using a range of materials, we’ll get sketching and learn about mark-making to describe textures and patterns.

Facebook Review

'Had a wonderful relaxing evening at the Plant Life in Watercolour class today. I have not done any art since I was at school (many years ago) but that didn’t matter at all. Everyone made me feel very welcome and there was lots of encouragement and I learnt lots about watercolour painting. Will definitely be booking onto more classes. Highly recommend!' -Kerry
