About this event

What's in store...

A man who needs no introduction (but we're going to give him one anyway) Ray Woods is a leading botanical authority who has previously been featured on the BBC, the Guardian, and many other places sharing his enthusiasm and vast knowledge. His personal specialty is moss and lichen, both of which are a key part of the habitat around Rhayader, due to our fantastically clean air!

The Drawing Session

The drawing session follows the talk, and is comprised of a brief materials demonstration - you will be encouraged to try something new, wether that's using watercolour pencils to build the dramatic sweep of flowering mosses, exploring the lines and texture in hanging tangles of lichen with the calligraphic reed pens and drawing inks, or letting yourself go into the darker, smudgier hollows and forms of fungi with charcoal.

We will do a few warm-up exercises before diving into a longer session, so you can experiment around. No previous knowledge necessary! You will surprise yourself by the end of the day. You will be supported as you create something wonderful to take home.

Materials

You're more than welcome to bring your own materials, but we also have many for you to choose from, including:

- 2m distance encouraged

- limited numbers of people

- hand sanitizer station

- track & trace

- Open doors for airflow (consider bringing a jumper!)

The talk will be filmed, from behind people's heads, so your face will not be visible. If this is an issue please do let me know so that I can make sure you are seated well off-camera.
