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

An exotic collection of natural history specimens will be the inspiration for this workshop, including colourful feathers, seed pods, fossils, skulls and bones. Select a few items and using watercolour make a study page inspired by the work of 17th Century artist Jan Van Kessel.

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 workshop costs £60 and is open to all.

  • Registration is essential to secure your place.
