This course is suitable for all levels of experience, including those new to drawing and painting. Structured teaching, plus demonstrations, group and individual tuition will enable you to explore the marvellous world of Lepidoptera, using pencil, watercolour and gouache. We will be working with set and pinned specimens and the workshop will be supplemented by support from enthusiastic and knowledgeable Field Studies Council staff and volunteers.
