A Botany workshop for people who draw and paint plants and flowers is a fairly rare event.
On 9-10th July 2016 Anne Bebbington, who is one of the leading tutors on this topic (see below), is delivering a weekend Botany for Botanical Illustrators Workshop at Kew Gardens.
The thing is it's not on the website, it's not in the Short Courses List and it's not on the Calendar!
In fact, the only place you can find out that it exists is Kew's spring/summer talks and courses brochure and which can be downloaded from their website (click the link above to download the brochure and find out the course fee)
A two-day course for botanical artists who want to know more about their subjects. The practical sessions will demonstrate how the study of a plant can be a fascinating journey of discovery, informing your artwork by helping you to understand its structure and how it works....The emphasis in these workshops will be on practical botanical work. There will an opportunity to do some drawing, so please bring sketchbooks and pencils.
