Adult Masterclass: Natural Treasures

Explore found treasures from the natural world, using watercolour and graphite.

When, Where

Take an autumnal stroll through the natural world with the expert guidance of botanical artist Elaine Searle. 

Join us this November for a fun day using watercolours and graphite to explore 'found treasures' such as seed pods, dried leaves, pebbles and bird feathers. This masterclass is a chance to look closely at the things you might find on coast or country path, tuning your eye into the small-scale beauty of these objects from the natural world.
