Gemma from Green Fox workshops will first show you how to effectively capture nature through tonal shading and mark making techniques followed by a burst of colour using chalk pastels.

The session starts indoors with flowers and foliage from the estate. After lunch we'll venture into the Kitchen Garden for quicker studies of fruit and vegetables.

You'll also have the chance to display one of your pieces in a spring exhibition at Tyntesfield.

Please bring an A4 ring bound sketchbook.
