Eden Botanical Courses

We currently run courses for non-members in association with the Eden Project. If you are a member, please see our Events pages for specialist courses you can sign up to.

This Winter we are running the 3-Day course below.

A 3-Day Introduction to Botanical Illustration 9-11th November 2018

Join botanical artists from The Eden Project Florilegium Society for a special three days at the Eden Project, where they will guide you through the techniques of graphite drawing and shading and how to turn this into a finished watercolour painting. Full details are on the Eden Project’s website and you can book here

All courses are held in the fantastic surroundings of the Eden Project Mediterranean Biome. Mally Francis and Laura Silburn will be teaching on this course. Courses are suitable for complete beginners or intermediate artists.


Below are other course we have run with Eden. 

A 5-DAY Complete Introduction to Botanical Drawing and Painting

This course aims to give you a thorough introduction to drawing and painting plants and combines our two previous introductions into one week-long course. Including a half-day of botanical study, the course aims to help you create a finished piece by the end of the week.

A 3-DAY Preparing a Botanical Study Page

This new course will go through everything you need to record to create a botanical study page. This can then be used to produce an accurate piece of botanical art although a study page can be an attractive work of art in its own right.
