Live Video Pen and Ink Drawing Workshop to support Butterfly Conservation

June 1 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


Fancy learning how to carve and use your own bamboo pen from the comfort of your own home, create your own beautiful illustrations with ease, and raise money for charity all in one fell swoop?

The focus of this exciting live online drawing class, held on 1st June 2024 at 10am, will be an inky Peacock butterfly sat on top of a Buddleja bloom. You’ll receive a craft kit in the post with all the materials one week prior to the workshop, so when the live class begins you’ll have everything you need. The full lesson will include a step-by-step of how to hand-carve your own bamboo pen, drawing exercises including mark-making, colour mixing and illustrative techniques, and then a guided final piece on a ready-prepared greeting card of the peacock and buddleja as shown in the image.

In your kit you will receive two blank watercolour greeting cards and eco envelopes, so you can try your hand at creating the same design twice, or making your own second design! Don’t worry if you can’t make it on the day, the session will be recorded for you to enjoy in your own time afterwards. The craft kit will include a ready-made bamboo pen, powdered inks, a £5 voucher for katemoby.com, two luxury blank greeting cards with envelopes, and all practice papers and reference materials. Suitable for ages 7+.

£10 of the ticket price goes straight to Butterfly Conservation, so you can learn a new skill whilst raising crucial funds to help butterflies and moths in decline in the UK.
