Tuesday 15th June - 10am-1pm - £35, materials and refreshments included

Join local Artist Peg Morris and Art Historian Catherine Parry-Wingfield, following Turner's footsteps in a morning of sketching and history! Starting from Buccleuch Gardens, where we will stay for about 20/30 minutes to sketch the view, we will move towards the viewpoint at Richmond Terrace and stop in that area for about 40/50 minutes and, finally, we will walk towards Pembroke Lodge, in Richmond Park, to complete the session.

We will look at the views that inspired Turner himself and listen to the history behind them. Artist Peg Morris will show you the basis of sketching in nature and how to get the best views, while Art Historian Catherine Parry-Wingfield will tell you about the relationship that JMW Turner had with the area.

All materials will be provided but you are welcome to bring your own tools. We also suggest that you come prepared for rain or strong sun. The workshop will go ahead in both cases (in perfect Turner-style!). We will also provide umbrellas, stools, clipboards and refreshments for the session. All the current outdoor covid-safety rules will be followed and art materials packed separately, as well as refreshments. We will also provide hand sanitiser and alcohol wipes to use for stools, umbrellas and clipboards, if needed, and face coverings when social distancing is not possible. Social distancing will be recommended to participants and demonstrated by our staff.

If you are travelling by car, we suggest you park near Pembroke Lodge and join us at the meeting point at Buccleuch Gardens, near the River Thames.

Places are limited so please book online.
