Tulips in Watercolour – with local artist Ruth Eales
Saturday 4th April 10am - 1pm
Spend a morning here on the farm immersed in painting our tulips in watercolour and letting your creativity flow. Ruth is a very talented artist whose work is showcased here in The Granary. Ruth won the SAA's (Society for All Artists) coveted "Young Artist of the Year" award 2017, as well as "Best Young Animal or Wildlife".
The morning will start in the cutting garden with Rosie where she will explain a little about the varieties and techniques used to plant over 100 different varieties in a bed of 4000. You are welcome to choose from any of the tulips ready for cutting to create your own take home bunch plus a few floral subjects ready to paint. Bring a glass vase or flower vessel (or we have plenty to choose from if not) and then off to The Old Dairy where you choose the crucial stems you wish to paint and arrange in your vase. We are looking to focus on just a few tulips in a simple composition rather than trying to paint a large vase full and be overwhelmed at the prospect. Ruth will teach and guide you in creating your own watercolour painting of them.
We are keen to offer this workshop to everyone, making it as inclusive as possible so don't think you need to know your way around a paint brush - just come along and give it a go.
Price: £50 per person including all materials, tuition, homemade cake and refreshments, your painted masterpiece and your own handpicked bunch of tulips.
