All proceeds from this event are being kindly donated by Philippa Dow to the Pimlott Foundation.

This day is all about looking at plants as they prepare for winter. We will look how the colours change as they decay and examine the structures of bare stems and branches.

We will use quills and ink made from oak galls and we will draw with pens made from reeds and other items from nature. But please feel free to bring any paints or other materials which you might own.

You will need to bring a large pad of cartridge paper. Daler or anything similar preferably A2 or larger.

Please feel free to email Philippa at for any queries.

You can find out more about Philippa and her art at her website:

Refreshments will be provided but please bring your own lunch.
