  • Eden Project

    Botanical Illustration - Eden Project

    Introduction to botanical illustration

    Three-day course

    29-31 Mar 2019

    Taught in the Mediterranean Biome at Eden Project

    £220 per person (10% off for Eden Project Members)

    Join botanical artists from The Eden Project Florilegium Society for a special three days at the Eden Project, where they will guide you through the techniques of graphite drawing and shading and how to turn this into a finished illustration. You may also be interested in our Botanical painting course.

    What you'll learn
    Botanical illustration is all about looking at plants in a traditional but exciting way. Here’s what you’ll be doing…

    Introduction to botany: you will be given a half-day introduction to/refresher of the basic botany useful to the botanical illustrator, delivered by a member of the Eden Horticulture Team. 

    An introduction to the history of botanical illustration: how the traditional methods of watercolour, pen and ink and graphite have been used for centuries and cannot be replaced by photography alone. 

    Accurate drawing techniques: we’ll introduce you to accurate line-drawing and tonal shading to make your subject appear three-dimensional, as well as helping you arrange your subject on the paper. 

    In a nutshell, you will have three days to concentrate on drawing and tonal shading, focusing on accuracy – the key to a beautiful illustration. Whilst attention to detail is important, botanical illustration is a very relaxing and enjoyable art form.

    Who it's for
    The course is suitable for both beginners and improvers. There will be a maximum of 10 people in this group.

    What’s included

    • Three days of expert tuition (10am – 4pm)

    Spring Flower Show - Wadebridge

    Cornwall Spring Flower Show

    Named by The Sunday Telegraph as one of the best flower shows to visit in the UK

    Planning for the CGS Spring Flower Show 2019 is well underway and here's just a taster of what you can look forward to:
     
    Held in the exhibition halls and adjacent show ring at Wadebridge, Cornwall, this amazing venue is tailor-made for delivering prestigious county events just like ours.
    The spacious exhibition hall will bring together the stunning floral displays from the CGS Spring Flower Show’s exhibits under one roof for the first time.
     
    The Competitive Classes gives everyone the opportunity to view the county’s finest floral specimens that have been entered to compete.
    Within the exhibition halls, there will be the beautiful floral art and floral photography exhibits and classes too.
     
    For the first time, a dedicated members’ area will offer a central hub to the CGS Spring Flower Show; where members can meet, share information, and gain horticultural inspiration and ideas from leading experts.  All show visitors will be able to view all of this, while browsing the wide range of trade stands for horticultural shopping; finding that very necessary item for their garden and gardening pastime.
     
    The finest local food producers will provide food and drinks for everyone to enjoy in a dedicated marquee with ample seating to enjoy a welcome cup of tea or coffee.

    Children Focused 
    The Cornwall Garden Society has been developing a growing emphasis on gardening for children to help develop the next generation of horticultural experts.
    We are very fortunate to be able to call upon Tam Pemberton and Perennial Harvest to lead this burgeoning aspect to the CGS Spring Flower Show which provides activities, competitions and entertainment for all ages.

    Gardening Interest and Inspiration 
    The CGS Spring Flower Show provides gardening inspiration for everyone to enjoy, from impressive floral displays to interactive sessions. For example, you will be able to participate in a Gardeners’ Questions at the central stage with seating space in the heart of the exhibition hall.  These interactive sessions are designed to inform and entertain all our guests.
     
    While Cornwall has a proud heritage of some of the leading gardens and horticultural expertise, there will also be the opportunity for gardeners both great and small to compete against each other.

    Trade Stands 
    Visitors to the show will be able to browse the wide range of horticultural trade stands for shopping. The majority of the nurseries are from Cornwall and the South-West, complemented by prestigious and specialist nurseries from elsewhere in the UK.
    There are not many places where a gardener can go to get such a fantastic offering. We will have traders of all sorts of garden related items, including plants and shrubs from a variety of specialist nurseries and garden centers.
     
    There should be something for everyone who is looking for that very necessary item for their garden and gardening inspiration.
    Added to this we will have the wonderful Artisan Centre which has been so popular in recent years.

    We look forward to welcoming you to the largest horticultural show in the country outside London on 6 and 7 April 2019, at our own "Chelsea of the West". And hope you will keep an eye on our website for more information nearer the time.

  • Wadebridge

    Spring Flower Show - Wadebridge

    Cornwall Spring Flower Show

    Named by The Sunday Telegraph as one of the best flower shows to visit in the UK

    Planning for the CGS Spring Flower Show 2019 is well underway and here's just a taster of what you can look forward to:
     
    Held in the exhibition halls and adjacent show ring at Wadebridge, Cornwall, this amazing venue is tailor-made for delivering prestigious county events just like ours.
    The spacious exhibition hall will bring together the stunning floral displays from the CGS Spring Flower Show’s exhibits under one roof for the first time.
     
    The Competitive Classes gives everyone the opportunity to view the county’s finest floral specimens that have been entered to compete.
    Within the exhibition halls, there will be the beautiful floral art and floral photography exhibits and classes too.
     
    For the first time, a dedicated members’ area will offer a central hub to the CGS Spring Flower Show; where members can meet, share information, and gain horticultural inspiration and ideas from leading experts.  All show visitors will be able to view all of this, while browsing the wide range of trade stands for horticultural shopping; finding that very necessary item for their garden and gardening pastime.
     
    The finest local food producers will provide food and drinks for everyone to enjoy in a dedicated marquee with ample seating to enjoy a welcome cup of tea or coffee.

    Children Focused 
    The Cornwall Garden Society has been developing a growing emphasis on gardening for children to help develop the next generation of horticultural experts.
    We are very fortunate to be able to call upon Tam Pemberton and Perennial Harvest to lead this burgeoning aspect to the CGS Spring Flower Show which provides activities, competitions and entertainment for all ages.

    Gardening Interest and Inspiration 
    The CGS Spring Flower Show provides gardening inspiration for everyone to enjoy, from impressive floral displays to interactive sessions. For example, you will be able to participate in a Gardeners’ Questions at the central stage with seating space in the heart of the exhibition hall.  These interactive sessions are designed to inform and entertain all our guests.
     
    While Cornwall has a proud heritage of some of the leading gardens and horticultural expertise, there will also be the opportunity for gardeners both great and small to compete against each other.

    Trade Stands 
    Visitors to the show will be able to browse the wide range of horticultural trade stands for shopping. The majority of the nurseries are from Cornwall and the South-West, complemented by prestigious and specialist nurseries from elsewhere in the UK.
    There are not many places where a gardener can go to get such a fantastic offering. We will have traders of all sorts of garden related items, including plants and shrubs from a variety of specialist nurseries and garden centers.
     
    There should be something for everyone who is looking for that very necessary item for their garden and gardening inspiration.
    Added to this we will have the wonderful Artisan Centre which has been so popular in recent years.

    We look forward to welcoming you to the largest horticultural show in the country outside London on 6 and 7 April 2019, at our own "Chelsea of the West". And hope you will keep an eye on our website for more information nearer the time.
