Discover how to create a field sketchbook, observing and recording signs of the season with botanical and wildlife artist, Ruth Wharrier. (PLEASE NOTE – the next Field Sketchbook workshop with Ruth is running at Carlton Marshes on Monday, March 12.)

This course will enable you to create your own naturalist’s sketchbook and have the confidence to go out and draw!

Workshops can be taken individually as one- or two-day sessions (Saturday and Monday March 10 & 12), or as a full course with seasonal dates scheduled across the year (June 16 & 18; Sept 29 & Oct 1; Dec 1 & 3).

The focus will be on observational sketching techniques that can be used outside whilst walking and also on detailed drawing techniques that can be used back at home.

Based at Carlton Marshes, the course will allow participants the opportunity to observe and record the changing seasons within this stunning reserve. The centre at Carlton Mashes offers an inspiring setting with enviable views out across the marshes and reed beds. For botanists, Carlton Marshes is one of the very best places in Suffolk for the sheer variety of plants.
