Garden Journalling

Before the age of photography, planning and keeping track of a garden required an illustrated journal to study the progress of heirloom varieties, pest control and crop rotation. These marvellous books are no longer strictly needed, but have the potential to be a beautiful form of art.

Over this 5 week class you will have the chance to experiment and create your own garden journal, by merging scrapbooking, sketchbooking and mindful-journaling with botanical illustration and the ins and outs of your garden – whether that’s your allotment, balcony, or back garden plot. We will cover a wide range of skills including creative journaling, visual elements that don’t involve drawing as well as observational drawing and painting botanicals. A beginner will have the chance to test materials and learn new skills under guidance, while advanced students will have the opportunity to branch into their own creative practice, inspired by the course content. Mostly we spend an evening a week drinking tea and talking about weeds!
