In 2020 Penny will be leading graphite pencil and cut paper collage workshops with the South West Society of Botanical Artists, at The Kingcombe Centre, at Sculpture by the Lakes and at The Dorset Centre for the Creative Arts on Poundbury.
New Correspondence Botanical Drawing Group
I have set up a graphite pencil drawing group to keep us all learning and motivated through the isolation of coronavirus. There will be a project every few weeks, with references, botanical information, step-by-step diagrams and ideas to develop further. You will then send your work to me, and I will return it with personalised, constructive advice. Please contact me for further details at firstname.lastname@example.org
