Pippa loves to gather flowers from her garden and forage foliage from the country lanes around her Peak District home. Each season yields its own treasures: snowdrops and daffodils in the spring, sweet peas in the summer, crisp autumn leaves and acorns, followed by a winter crop of evergreen holly. These ephemeral delights can be enjoyed forever by capturing their forms and textures as natural bas-relief casts. Every nuance of even the most delicate petals, leaf veins and fronds is beautifully preserved, frozen in time!

 

New for 2022 Pippa will be running this course in association with the Royal Horticultural Society!

Dates and venues TBA…
