About the event

A unique watercolour painting workshop, paying homage to the beauty and importance of bees in the natural world.  This gorgeous event is aimed at both lovers of painting & bees - although you don’t have to be an expert in either. 

One of Britain's most successful wildlife and natural history artists , Cath Hodsman will entrance students by introducing them to the wonderful & magical world of bees by talking about their lifestyle, lifecycle, anatomy and pollination-prowess. You will have full access to Cath’s vast range of ethically sourced bee specimens (all natural death) along with high-powered microscopes to allow unprecedented entry into their lives. 

With Cath’s expert guidance, every student will complete a stunning watercolour painting,  following their own easy step-by-step painting guide that will enable each individual to closely follow the creative process. Cath will offer support and guidance to every student as and when and if they need it. All equipment, materials  and guides will be provided.

This will be a day long creative retreat, and will include a welcome soft drink, and delicious light lunch served by Berry Farm.

As well as being fascinating; this retreat will be great fun and a wonderful opportunity to spend two days with likeminded, creative, nature-loving souls. Those who attend Cath’s lovely insect-art events will never quite see insects in the same way again – your respect and appreciation of them will deepen forever.
