We’re very excited to welcome Ellie Green, founder of Surrey Art School to Salt Box HQ. Ellie will be bringing a gentle dose of Mindful Creativity to the Salt Box this Summer with a delightfully seasonal botanical pen and wash workshop where you’ll learn some simple, effective ways to work with with pigment liners before embracing a bright and beautiful colour palette to add a light watercolour wash to your drawings.
We’ll take a mindful walk through the summer meadow, capturing the sights and scents of the summer season. After we’ve gathered a delightful bouquet of wildflowers from the surrounding meadows, Ellie will guide you through how to capture these using soothing watercolour technique. From wet on wet, to pen and wash, expect a journey of discovery to the mesmerising world of botanical watercolour painting that will leave you feeling calm and connected to this beautiful season.
This workshop is suitable for beginners and Ellie’s gentle and mindful approach to teaching will encourage your confidence levels to bloom and your technical skill to blossom.
Following the workshop, we’ll sit down for a delicious picnic lunch. Inspired by local and seasonal produce, our menus showcase the very best of our doorstep produce.
