About this event

“I cannot rest, I must draw, however poor the result, and when I have a bad time come over me it is a stronger desire than ever…” - Beatrix Potter

Beatrix Potter was an artist of incredible talent who had a deep appreciation for nature and drawing. She is the writer and illustrator of one of the most adored children’s books of all time, The Tale of Peter Rabbit (1902).

She found a wealth of inspiration for her drawings in the British countryside and in animals and plants but also for her work as a scientist, farmer, conservationist and story teller.

Tutor Frances Stanfield will take you through Beatrix Potter’s art process and how her playful drawings come alive on the page. You will also find inspiration in how Potter looked at and connected with nature and her environment, in particular, the Lake District. It was here that she bought additional land to conserve it with the money she made from her books, including those that she self published. She self published originally because her books were rejected by publishers but also when they didn’t agree with her insisting on certain things such as the books must be small - for small hands.

You will need:

  • A Pencil
  • Paper
  • Frances will also show you how to bring your drawings alive with watercolours so if you can have some watercolours ready, preferably a box (pan) of watercolours
  • A brush
  • A black fine liner pen or ink pen.
  • Some thick paper such as watercolour paper.

If you don’t have these though, don’t worry, a pencil will do!

We have been in touch with Eventbrite, and they have informed us that currently you cannot book tickets to paid events in their app. It's very frustrating and we have been assured they are working on a solution. In the meantime, we recommend that you book tickets to our events outside of the iOS app - either via a web browser or a desktop


And that's it!

We're really looking forward to you joining us.
