About the event

A workshop with the wonderful botanical artist Helen Haywood.

Helen has exhibited at the Kew Gardens Gallery and her work was included in A New Flowering: 1000 Years of Botanical Art exhibition at the Ashmolean Museum. Now living in Herefordshire, in 2017 she had a solo show at Studio 54 Gallery in Kington: The Art of Helen Haywood.

Some experience of working with watercolour is an advantage for this workshop.

Some time will be spent outside, weather permitting, so please bring weather-appropriate clothing and outdoor footwear.

Tea and coffee will be available for free throughout the day. Please bring a packed lunch or visit the Queenswood Café.

This is a fundraising event for Herefordshire Wildlife Trust - with grateful thanks to Helen Haywood for donating her time and skills.
