Bosham workshop program

Version 2

Because of the success of my online botanical art course and subjects that many students ask me to do, the first part of this year’s workshops will reflect some of the tutorials from my course. Normally I use the first part of each workshop to focus on drawing the subjects, but now will separate this out to spend more time on these important subjects. This means that each workshop is two days rather than three days long. And there are more UK workshops.

Workshops are between 10:00 – 16:00 and all include lunch, teas & coffee.

Please bring your own drawing and painting materials, although Gaynor has some supplies for sale. Ask Gaynor for a suggested materials list if this would be helpful. Some plant material will be available but please bring your own if you have something special in mind.

Accommodation: Gaynor can supply a list of local places in and around Bosham.

UK workshop places are deliberately limited to 8 people, so that all students get personal attention. You can book by using the booking form below and sending it with a non returnable deposit of £60. This will secure a place on a workshop if one is available. If there are no remaining places, we will contact you and add your name to the waiting list. The balance of the fee is due six weeks before the workshop starts. Failure to pay at this stage may mean that we will give your place to someone else on the waiting list.

If you cancel less than six weeks before the start of the workshop the fee will not be refunded. But you may give your place to another person not already signed up for the workshop.

If you wish to transfer to another workshop, you must let us know at least six weeks before the start of the workshop on which you have your booking.

We strongly recommend that you take out appropriate holiday insurance to cover risks such as cancellation, including cancellation due to adverse weather, loss or ill-health, as we cannot be held responsible. If Gaynor cancels, she will of course give you a full refund.

Workshop places fill quite quickly so book early.
