In-person Workshops

In-person workshops with live specimens and workshop booklets.

In-person workshops – as COVID and travel permit

I have had to curtail my in-person 3-day workshops because of COVID-19 restrictions on travel and local regulations. Nevertheless, where and when possible, I am conducting local in-person workshops. These are listed below for booking but if you are not able to attend, consider my online workshops. In both instances the workshops are supported by e-booklets available from the bookstore.

I’ve listed my currently-scheduled in-person 3-day workshops below. In the meantime, I’m working on my 2022 in-person workshop schedule. The dates and locations will depend upon the COVID-19 situation in the next few months. You can see references from previous workshops on the Reviews page of this site and on my portfolio website at

Drawing from live specimens

Please understand that I conduct my workshops according to a strict principle that the botanical art process starts with a live specimen. I do not draw or colour-match from digital images or photographs and I do not teach that way either. Consequently, I do not believe in providing drawings or photographs to workshop attendees.

I will shortly list the workshops scheduled for Mahone Bay for the rest of 2022 (subject to COVID conditions). And as I mentioned before, I will list other locations as well when COVID conditions permit.
