Botanical Castings

Clare was a wonderful tutor, really calm and patient during the first lesson showing us the technique.

This meant for the following lessons we were able to go straight into creating incredibly detailed impressions from the plants and flowers.

Her enthusiasm was energising and we all came away with work to be proud of!
