Au programme

'If you can paint one leaf, you can paint the world' wrote the Victorian Art critic John Ruskin. You will be given an introduction into Botanical Art and insight into my work at my studio. I will show you how to observe, draw and paint a leaf in watercolour. There will be plenty of leaves available for you to choose from. If you prefer and have some previous drawing and watercolour experience, you could also paint a flower or a fruit... maybe an apple? ... or feel free to bring your own plant/flower specimen.
Other things to note
Bring an interest in the natural world. You don't need to have any previous experience in drawing, painting or Botanical Art. I will give individual guidance depending on each guest's experience.

Born and raised in Switzerland, I've always been close to nature. I also love to paint; and having created large organic, abstract works in the past and as a passionate gardener, I became more and more drawn to illustrate nature in detail. Now living in Wales , my path took me 'from abstract to the exact' and so I studied Botanical Art and graduated with a distinction and an award of excellence. I now regularly exhibit my work locally and abroad and offer Botanical Art workshops for both beginners and more experiences artists at my Studio in South Wales UK.

Sonja's explanations and demonstrations were excellent, enabling us to come away with very nice work. Her studio is charming and welcoming, and Sonja is very friendly. Altogether an enjoyable experience and I've learnt quite a bit more about watercolour painting and botanical painting. Can highly recommend.

What a fantastic afternoon. I was lucky enough to be the only one who showed up and had a 1 to 1 lesson with Sonja. She is so friendly and welcoming and a fantastic watercolour artist. She has a great teaching style and really boosted my confidence. I came in having never painted or drawn anything in my life, and left with some decent skills! I’d definitely recommend this class. I might go back for round 2!

A wonderful afternoon spent learing some basic watercolour techniques from a passionate expert. Sonja was welcoming and friendly and her studio was delightful. I can highly recommend this experience.

You won’t leave disappointed. Sonja really knows her stuff. Watercolor is not easy, but she explained it in a step by step lesson that took a lot of the mystery out of painting a beautiful leaf. I took a solo lesson, and I loved it, but do consider bringing along a few friends for a group lesson-a fun girls day out! I highly recommend.

This was a fantastic experience! It was not only relaxing, but also a great afternoon of learning. Sonja taught us a tremendous amount in a short period of time and we all walked away with something we could be proud of. Definitely recommend this!
