Flower photography workshop and painting tuition, Holt Village Hall, 4th November 2017

Flower photography  – 4th November 2017, Holt Village Hall, nr Wimborne, Dorset.

I’ll be teaching a flower photography workshop, ‘Photographing and Painting Flowers’, on Saturday 4th November 2017, in conjunction with artist Penny Wilton. The workshop will be held at Holt Village Hall, Wimborne, Dorset. 9.30am – 2pm.

Bring along a camera (a manual focus camera is preferable to using a phone or iPad, as the latter have limited capability) and a small flower that you’d like to photograph and paint. If you have a tripod please bring that too. I’ll also be bringing some flowers with me.

Later on, try painting your flower in any medium you like, with tuition from local artist Penny Wilton.

Holt Village Hall is just outside Wimborne, at Harts Lane, Holt, Wimborne BH21 7DJ.

For more details and to book a place at the head on over to Penny Wilton’s website.

Dorset’s Wild Orchids 2022

Dorset’s Wild Orchids 2022

We are lucky in Dorset because we have what is possibly the best site for early spider-orchids in the UK. Ophrys sphegodes is also the first orchid to flower each year, heralding the start of the ‘orchid season.’ This year, I also found a woodcock orchid x Fly orchid hybrid, growing on a steep, Dorset hillside.
