Key Facts about The Bloom Botanical & Floral Art Exhibition
Happy in Bloom provides a taster of the exhibition this year. It's a blog post about last year's event by Shevaun Doherty, one of last year's Gold Medal Winners. It has lots of photos of what the exhibition looked like last year.
The Botanical and Floral Art Exhibition is held in the Visitor’s Centre.
This lies between the beautiful Victorian walled garden and Ashton Castle, a 17th century medieval tower house. Click here to download the Bloom site map.

I've brought together on one NEW page all the blog posts I can find about the various assignments for the Society of Botanical Artists Distance Learning Diploma Course - organised by assignment.
Take a look at Society of Botanical Art Diploma Course - commentary via blog posts
It struck me that reading and seeing what people have done in the past might well be helpful to those currently doing the Diploma - or thinking about doing so in future.
To date, the new page has been very well received - with a lot of people commenting that they wish they'd had access to something like this will they were doing the DLDC.
The page will be updated in the future as new blog posts are created.
