Botanical Relief Workshop with Janet Howkins

Botanical Relief Workshop with Janet Howkins

Step into Autumn and learn the technique of capturing the finest detail nature has to offer through plaster relief casting.

About the event

A holistically creative workshop where you’ll be introduced to the wonders of nature in detail and learn how to preserve the beauty of the outdoors into a piece you can hang in your home.

This 3hr workshop is suitable for beginners to advance level.  You’ll be hands on with clay and plaster to turn out your very own beautiful cast.  The workshop doesn’t stop there, you’ll also learn how to finish off your cast once fully dry at home.

Due to the materials used this workshop can be quite messy so old clothes are advised.

All materials and botanicals will be provided.


£60 per person. Tickets available to purchase at
