Draw the Gardens … relaxed drawing sessions

Like to draw? Join us for our new monthly relaxed drawing sessions with our artists in residence.

From 1.30 -3.30, on the 2nd Wednesday of every month, artists from the Birmingham Society of Botanical Artists will be in the Gardens drawing and recording our lovely plants.

Anyone can join them for a no hassle, not pressure drawing session – whatever your ability.

As the seasons progress BSBA will record the life cycle of our plants… why not come and have a go yourself. They will be pleased to advise and support… or just leave you to your own devices.

Bring your own materials or take advantage of some basic pen and paper we’ll provide.

Normal entry fees apply but materials and support are free

Be part of making it special for all our visitors – young and old, local and from further afield…Our mushroom village houses will be popping up all over the Garden … #wegrowtogether.

the woodland walk will be open for at least 4 special weekend days in December.. culminating in a Community Lantern Parade on the 16th December.

Mushroom makers’ who help on these making workshop days will get free refreshments on the day and, as a thank you, a token for free hot chocolate and marshmallows in our community Lantern Parade on 16th Dec.

It takes about 2-3 hours to make the lanterns, and its probably best for children over 7years old .

Pop in on the days .. or contact us here for more info, or if your group can come another time

A great family, club or class event. These workshops are free.
