Botanical Walk and Draw

Sarah Cannell will be teaming up with Nathalie Chidley, Herbalist, for this new workshop day. We will spend the day exploring the 3 acres of orchard, meadow and gardens at the Raveningham Centre, learning about the folklore of plants and responding creatively by filling sketchbooks with a variety of drawings, prints, paintings. There will be a good supply of art materials available and students will be encouraged to gather the flowers/leaves that interest them as source material. The day will give participants the chance to play, experiment and create in an inspiring space.


Sarah’s workshops are suitable for all abilities with her relaxed approach giving beginners confidence and her depth of knowledge being a useful source for more confident artists to bounce ideas off. Participants should expect to come away from each workshop with fresh ideas as well as a renewed enthusiasm and creative drive. Teas and coffees included, bring your own lunch. Workshop runs 10-4pm, all materials included, maximum 12 students. Workshop space at The Raveningham Centre, Beccles Road, Raveningham, Norfolk, NR14 6NU.

General workshop information

Materials are included in the workshop price but students are encouraged to bring their own favourite materials and tools too. It is important to wear old clothes or bring a good apron as we will be using materials that will be difficult to wash out of clothes. Please bring a packed lunch, tea and coffee will be available.

Where to stay: There are a number of local bed and breakfasts. The Kings Head Hotel in the local market town Beccles is very comfortable and affordable and only a 10 minute drive from the workshop venue.
