Watercolour Bees Bugs and Botanicals 

Part of the Garden and Art Festival Series

Come and relax into the tiny world as seen through the eye of a bee. Kate Steeds will demonstrate some of the techniques that she uses to create her botanical and insect paintings, and that you can then put to use to create a small drawing or watercolour painting of your own during the rest of the three-hour workshop.  Kate will offer tips, support and guidance on a one to one basis, encouraging you to work at the pace and with the style or techniques that suit you best.  All you need will be supplied including a mat and frame so your creation maybe shown off to its best advantage and hung as soon as you get home.  Please bring a piece of board, A3 size suitable for stretching watercolour paper, if you have it, it is not essential
