Immerse yourself in nature in the Walled Garden at West Horsley Place using watercolours to create your own, unique artwork.

Whether you focus on long views, the architecture or close ups, there is plenty out there to spark your creativity. Experiment with different ways of working to find your own style, with time to develop your own work to take home.

If the weather is unkind - don't worry! We will bring nature indoors to study in dry surroundings. Please bring something to sit on outdoors and dress for all eventualities that the British springtime might surprise us with.

Workshops with tutor & artist Diana Burch are relaxed and friendly, held in our inspiring, historic setting. No experience needed, we always have mixed ability groups where you will find encouragement and support from those around you.
