Workshop - Botanical Journals | Sail Loft
Wednesday 27th July 10am - 12pm
Introducing the BOTANICAL ATELIER, sail loft. This is our new and beautiful workshop space, situated just beneath the shop and a stones throw form the idyllic Falmouth Harbour. For many years in coastal towns there has been a very special link between sailors and artists and we feel so spectacularly fortunate to be able to extend our passion for art in the most wonderful space. With exposed beams, salt in the air and a harmonious existence of plants and paints you can step into a calming workshop and leave the outside world behind whilst you relax into botanical illustration.
Our regular workshops offer an introduction to Botanical Illustration. Learn a range of different techniques and skills using a range of mediums taught by award winning Botanical Illustrator, Sarah Jane Humphrey.
