The Botanical Art holiday workshop in Norway 29 June to 6 July will take place.
The holiday is booked with Thon Hotell, Åsgårdstrand. The studio overlooks the Oslo fjord and plants that are typical for Norway will be the topic.
Already I have bookings from students from different countries, all wanting to experience Norway in the middle of the summer when the weather is usually at its best.
The hotel has been really helpful so far with suggestions and support. The Norwegian Botany Organisation too has been supportive and want to help get the plants for us to draw or paint.
The only two uncertain things at this time are the names of the people who will be attending ( there are still some places available) and the weather. But apart from super accommodation and opportunities to enjoy the best of Norway, there will definitely be good botanical art teaching and good company.
There will be no more than 12 students so that each person gets individual attention at their own level. Although the workshop is still several months away, it is worth booking it as soon as possible to ensure a place.

Thank you to the Thon Hotell, Åsgårdstrand for the picture of their view of the Oslo Fjord.
