Nature Collection
Work produced by Rebecca Jewell, inspired by Jan Van Kessel

This evening class will allow participants to make a composition form natural history specimens, including insects, butterflies, shells and seed-pods. They will then sketch their 'nature collection' using dip-pen and ink, and watercolour, and have a finished picture to take home.

The class will take place in the newly-built studio in the Linnean Society, which has a wonderful cabinet display of specimens, books and objects.


This two-hour workshop costs £30 and is open to all.
