Having already looked at some theory, some techniques, and begun to draw and paint the subject matter….Now is the time to really start to bring these developing skills together. By now each of you will have a feeling of what sparks you, and how you might draw and paint your chosen subject. So let’s really focus and work towards producing sketches and a finished piece. Each student will be encouraged and guided along their preferred path to creating personally satisfying pieces of botanical work. Some will want to aim for a finished composition, others will prefer to work on small and varied studies, producing a variety of work. Whatever your inclination, you will be encouraged to develop and bring out the botanical in you!

We utilise drawing and water techniques (water colour, ink, aquarelle pencils & gel pens). All materials are provided, but after discussion you will be invited to bring photographic reference material and some live samples of your choosing.

Whether you are a returning student, or new to us but arriving with some established skills…..you are welcome to join the ‘blooming’ fun!

Katharine Ruddock

Qualifying with a BA Hons from Edinburgh College of Art, and Post Graduate Diploma from The London College of Furniture, my initial working life involved developing design & business skills at an interiors company in London. Later, self employment had me fulfilling creative briefs in illustration, small business logos, and occasional portrait drawing. Concurrently, commissions for domestic interiors grew, and over 23 years I built a successful interior design & decoration business, based largely in London.
More recently, a long held desire to concentrate on my own creative ideas had me return North, progressing my art and sculpture activities. Currently represented at a small gallery in the North East, fulfilling private commissions, and thrilled to be building this new chapter.
It’s exciting being part of Rossett Adult Learning - a really happy piece of life’s creative jigsaw - a lovely opportunity to share in artistic enthusiasm, and such a pleasure… meeting my students!
