Learn to Sketch Birds Workshop

Learn to Sketch Birds Workshop

This event is cancelled. We hope to reschedule for later in the year and will reopen bookings shortly.

Spend the day at Lemsford Springs Nature Reserve with local artist Martin Gibbons.

Martin will guide you through quickly drawing a bird’s key features and how to ensure their proportions are correct. Using pens, pencil and paper, learn the techniques to draw birds in the field. Starting with shape and form, Martin will guide you from the basics using pen and watercolours to adding colour and depth to your sketches.

Lemsford Springs has a small but light classroom, and two large bird hides, from which you will be able to sit and watch birds on the lagoon and in the margins.
Bring a packed lunch - hot drinks will be available during the day. There is a compost toilet on site.
