These workshops are a chance to enjoy creating something unique, inspired by the natural beauty outdoors in the restful and unspoiled grounds of Shambellie House. In the first session we will take time to explore the beautiful garden of Shambellie and gather interesting textures from natural foliage, before pressing the foliage into clay to create imprints for the plaster casting. These will be gently air dried for you at Shambellie House ready for the second workshop where we will clean up and varnish the circular discs created.

You will go home with a beautiful piece of unique artwork to hang or frame to display.


This is a two part workshop and the cost is for both days.
