Botanical Watercolour Workshop at Beetham Nurseries

I'm delighted to be teaching a Botanical Watercolour Workshop for Beginners at the lovely Beetham Nurseries, loosely inspired by dried flowers and their imperfect beauty!

Like all my watercolour workshops I like to take a relaxed, no pressure approach to painting. I encourage you to loosen up and embrace the natural qualities of watercolour paints where there are no right or wrong strokes, only happy accidents to be embraced. This approach to painting is not only creatively freeing, but also adds a sense of mindfulness to painting. It's the perfect opportunity to relax, unwind and let your creatively bloom.



A little more detail about what to expect during the workshop:

The 3-hour watercolour workshop will be split into two parts. In the first two hours, we'll focus on warming up, relaxing your wrist (and mind), and just getting comfortable with the paints. During this time, you can expect to paint at least three small practice paintings, using them to explore and play with the paints at a relaxed pace while creating lovely pieces of art. After this, we'll take a short break for homemade cake and coffee by Beetham Nurseries, giving you time to think about which flower(s) you'd like to paint for your final piece. The last hour will be dedicated to putting your newfound skills into practice as you continue to relax and paint your final masterpiece.



A lovely review about my workshops...

“Carla created a lovely calm environment for me to explore new techniques with watercolours and your amazing artwork is truly inspiring! Under your gentle guidance I was able to feel confident in feeling the different ways un which you can create an individual interpretation of the flowers we painted. I throughly recommend your work and any future workshops and hope that I have the opportunity to attend future events.” - Ruth 2024

More lovely reviews about my workshops:

'Fantastic experience. I have been wanting to start painting with watercolours for a while. It was a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere which put you all at ease whilst being instructed on basic techniques. Even suggestions of which brush, paints and paper to use on your voyage of discovery into this new genre . I loved every minute.'  - Karen 2023

'What a wonderful way to spend an afternoon! I'm not naturally a creative person, but I found Carla's painting style so therapeutic and enjoyable, I will definitely be booking on again.' - Angela 2021 

'Carla has a lovely way of teaching and explaining. I learnt several techniques in one lesson and I can’t wait for my next class! I highly recommend Carla’s watercolour workshops.' - Nicola 2020
