Pen and Ink Drawing Methods in Botanical Art

[Drawing of Field Margin plants (c) 2019 Sarah Morrish]

**We regret that due to the current situation regarding
COVID-19 (Coronavirus),
we have had to cancel this workshop**

We’re delighted to have Sarah Morrish provide two one-day workshops for members; they’ll be held in the National Botanic Gardens.  Sarah is a UK-based botanical and natural history artist who uses a variety of media for her work. Pen and ink has always played a major part in her work and she is currently writing and illustrating a book on natural history illustration in pen and ink, due for publication in Spring 2021.

Each one-day workshop will compare pen-and-ink drawing methods in botanical art and define the advantages and disadvantages of each. Attendees will also have a chance to get familiar with the variety of ink pens available to botanical artists. For more details, including materials and methods, open this PDF.

You can find out more about Sarah on her website.

Our new project is underway and all members have been informed through our AGM and in correspondence since. We held one workshop for members in the Spring, given by ISBA member Noeleen Frain (many thanks for Noeleen for a great day!) and we’re holding another now in early Summer: Claire Ward comes to us from Wales and will conduct a workshop in the National Botanic Gardens Curvilinear Room on Thursday 16 May. The cost is €35 and places are limited to 12. There are still some places available, check the event listing for more details, including how to apply.
