Emily is an accomplished painter and teacher of watercolour, in and around Brighton for the last 20 years. She is a member of The Sussex Watercolour Society and exhibits her work regularly.
Emily enjoys returning each summer to the beautiul Sussex prairies gardens. She introduces groups to watercolour in traditional and more experimental ways, demonstrates techniques that are centred around her own practice and references to past and present watercolourists artists that share the love and diversity of the medium. The day begins with quick exercises that help beginners and intermediates gain confidence with the medium and can use when at home or on holiday. The sessions are around building on what you may already know and exploring individual approaches to recording the beautiful garden in front of us.

      Wonderful garden well worth a visit. Great variety of plants showing so many ways of portraying a garden layout. Must comment on the great tea and cakes selection, our dog loved the doggy ice cream!

      Beautifully planted area, in which you are encouraged to walk along paths between the plants so can be completely surrounded by foliage - a lovely effect.
