Pencil Drawing for Beginners | Saturday 17th June, 2017 | 10am – 4pm
We’re excited to welcome local illustrator Louise Comfort-Cann, who will work alongside you, explaining basic drawing skills and showing you how to use pencils to bring to life the detail and colours of the English countryside. All materials will be provided for you and the workshop includes a two-course homemade lunch served with local wine.

Based in Grantham, Louise spent six years at art school, three years of which were at Kingston University where she completed a degree in Illustration. Having graduated in 1992, Louise has been illustrating children’s books for various top publishers ever since and has recently started teaching adults and children. She explains: “Drawing trains the eye to observe, opens the mind and is a fun and therapeutic activity. There will be lots to inspire us in the vineyard this summer – in particular the detail and colour of the wild flowers, vine leaves and English roses will make fantastic subjects for pencil drawing.”
To ensure the quality of your personal experience, group size will be limited to 8.
