Event description
Carlton Marshes: Discover how to create a field sketchbook to record the signs of the season,

About this Event

With botanical and wildlife artist, Ruth Wharrier. This course will enable you to create your own naturalist’s sketchbook and have the confidence to go out and draw! Workshops can be taken individually as one- or two-day sessions (Saturday and/or Monday), or as a full course with seasonal dates scheduled across the year (March 21 & 23; June 20 & 22; September 19 & 21; November 21 & 23). The focus will be on observational sketching techniques that can be used outside whilst walking and also on detailed drawing techniques that can be used back at home. 

Based at Carlton Marshes, the course will allow participants the opportunity to observe and record the changing seasons within this stunning reserve. The centre at Carlton Mashes offers an inspiring setting with enviable views out across the marshes and reed beds. 

Ruth studied Botanical Illustration at The Chelsea Physic Garden, London. She exhibits widely and examples of her natural history illustrations can be seen on the tourist information boards on Pakefield Cliff, Suffolk. Ruth paints in watercolour on paper, vellum and wood. She also creates etchings and works in pen and ink. Ruth is regularly commissioned to decorate harpsichords, for international clients, with flora and fauna using historical painting techniques.
