Sharing her passions for Biro drawing and wildlife, Jane's workshops include a brief discussion about featured animals, environmental issues and ways to help wildlife, followed by a practical Biro drawing session. Her workshops focus on the fact that drawing is a skill we all possess and can be a great source of self-expression and escapism! Individual tutoring, Biro drawing tips and advice are given by Jane throughout the workshop, as well as encouraging self-confidence to continue drawing. Her workshops offer an informal and enjoyable atmosphere for all ages, in the inspirational surroundings of Robinson-Gay gallery.

In corporate partnership with the Born Free Foundation, these workshops see 25% of Jane's workshop fee donated to BFF for their vital work conserving endangered species.
