Sheryl welcomes you to classes at Gilbert White’s house , where you can learn to paint in beautiful botanical style or improve your technique if you already have experience of painting.
We shall be choosing seasonal plants from the garden at Gilbert White using either the live specimen or using a photograph if so wished. At this time of year there should be many flowering plants to choose from including fruit blossoms, tulips , peonies and sweet peas( to name but a few).
The day starts at 10 am and run untill 5pm. At 12.30pm there is an hour break for lunch which can be taken at the new cafe and a stroll around the beautiful surroundings for inspiration.
