Laura Jones: The Garden

Thursday 14 January, 10am – 12noon

Inspired by Laura’s paintings, sketch then paint onto a long piece of card using mixed media, the scene of a table strewn with seed pods and native flowers. The artwork becomes an exploration of nature as seen through the eyes of a bee or a bird.  It is then transformed into a concertina artist book to take home.
