Meeting in the morning at the Royal Botanical Gardens, students will learn techniques to draw and produce images of the observed flora before returning to the studio. Armed with a wealth of information, sketches, rubbings and inspiration, they will explore design options, techniques and tooling required to forge a botanically inspired sculpture. The next 2 days, students will design and forge their own interpretation of a botanical form while being guided and supported by our excellent guest teacher Pete Mattila.

A wonderful course in a well equipped and spacious workshop by the river. I completed Module 1 in Feb 2022 and found the progressions each week gradual but still challenging. It was a well structured course with excellent teaching and a bit of light hearted fun along the way. They even have sparkling water on tap 😎. Thanks Waterside!
