The Tatham Art Gallery in Pietermaritzburg will host a Botanic Art Workshop with Elsa Pooley and Gillian Condy on October 15, 2019.

Do not miss this unique opportunity to explore and observe plants and to spend time illustrating them. Condy and Pooley combine their talents as botanical artists and the author of South African wild flower and tree field guides, to provide a memorable botanical art course.

This short course will focus on drawing, composition and the use of watercolour. Whether you are a beginner or an established botanical artist, the artists will accommodate you.  Attending the course will inform and inspire. All participants will have uninterrupted time to work on paintings, leaving unfinished work in the studio overnight.

The workshop will take place on October 15 and 16 from 09h00 to 15h30. Cost R1,200 pp for both days.

Art materials should be supplied by the artists (you will receive a list once you have booked). Additional supplies will be available at the course.

Numbers are limited. Advance booking is essential through Reena Bhoodram at 033 392 2823 or email:
