'Painting at the Flower Farm' Workshop
Join Watercolour Artist Mary-Clare McCulloch at Galloway Flowers for a relaxing day painting flowers with her expert guidance.
The wildlife-rich flower farm is closed to the public (except for workshops & floristry consultations). So this is a rare opportunity to paint the wide variety of seasonal flowers & foliage. There are traditional cutting garden favourites (Tulips, Cornflowers, Sweet Williams, Sweet Peas) plus many varieties rarely seen in the supermarket or High Street florist.
This workshop is suitable for all experience levels, including complete beginners.
Mary-Clare is experienced teaching watercolour techniques. The group will be small (maximum 6) so you'll have plenty of opportunity to ask your questions.
There are 4 workshop dates scheduled in 2020 - come along on your preferred date or on all 4. Different flowers bloom with the changing seasons.
You'll be welcomed on arrival by Rosie Gray & Ken Leslie of Galloway Flowers. Tea/coffee is included so just bring your own packed lunch & art materials.
