Sketch books can capture memories of travels or holidays with just a few strokes of the pencil, pen and brush.
If you have handy sketchbook that you’d like the inspiration and skills to fill this summer, this workshop could be for you.
This workshop is great for budding sketchers who want to try their hand at sketching on the move. You’ll first learn some useful methods in the studio, then venture out and about into the beautiful parkland and gardens to sketch.
The workshop also includes a two-course meal in the Terrace Restaurant and Bar, along with arrival tea/coffee/biscuits.
