Participants will learn how to produce an initial drawing of selected fungi, what to include in composition, and how to produce an eye catching and aesthetically pleasing botanical watercolour of fungi.

Open to all skill levels with a basic understanding of watercolour painting, Anna says "Independently of your level you will learn lots and lots of interesting and useful things about art, fungi, botanical illustration and watercolour techniques".
