This one day workshop will introduce you to plant and leaf structure in an approachable way. We will do some simple plant dissections, draw to scale and learn how to depict plants in a botanically accurate way. We may even use a bit of Latin!
This workshop is aimed at beginners. Learning a bit of botany will enable you to understand what you are drawing and will help you to achieve detailed and accurate botanical drawings, as well as being fascinating.
