Wildflowers on Easdale with Ling Warlow

Wildflowers on Easdale has been designed as an immersive experience for participants and a wonderful opportunity to work with paper botanist Ling Warlow.

Over the duration of the two-day course, you will spend time exploring Easdale island for inspiration and Ling will guide you as we look closely at the spring flowers and learn how to deconstruct the flower and recreate it using paper and mixed media. Paper flowers are a wonderfully mindful art form. You will emerge with new skills and a new way of looking at flowers!
