Event details

The workshop will take place on:

Saturday 13 July 
Saturday 5 October 


£95 per person

Learn how to develop a range of drawing techniques and create new compositions inspired by seasonal colours and landscapes in the Chatsworth Garden. 

The workshop will include getting to know your tools and learning effective techniques to use in location studies, opportunities to explore some areas of the garden and carry out observational drawings of flora and fauna, and time to discuss and review your creations with our experienced tutor and your course mates.

No previous drawing experience is required; you’ll be carefully guided through each stage of the process. Our experienced tutor will be on hand throughout the day, allowing you to follow along and ask any questions you may have. 

All materials are provided, but you are welcome to bring your own drawing equipment if you wish.  

About the session

The workshop will be based in our art studio - the Old Potting Shed. Tickets include tea and coffee throughout the day and a delicious graze box picnic lunch provided by the Chatsworth Farm Shop.

Please meet at the top garden gates near the Stables at 9.50am ready for a 10am start.

We will be outside whatever the weather so please wear suitable clothing. Time will be spent in the garden, which includes walking, inclines and periods of standing. Stools can be provided if you have mobility concerns. The Old Potting Shed is a step free, accessible venue.

Garden tickets are included so you can explore at your leisure after the workshop ends.

If you have any questions about accessibility or your individual needs please email education@chatsworth.org
