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.

Below are past courses we have run with The Eden Project. 

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.

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.

Sawpit Studio Workshops

Member’s Days and other practical workshops are run in The Sawpit Studio next door to Heligan Gardens. The studio is an ideal workspace and has a well-stocked library, lightbox and microscope.

Below are past courses we have run at the Sawpit Studio. 

Late Summer Colour Course

An autumn 3-day botanical course focused on flowers such as Japanese anemones, crocosmias, schizostylis and hydrangeas or anything else that is inspiring and good to paint.
