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 http://bestbotanical.com

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.
