Based at Heligan, Mally has painted a number of commissions for Tim Smit, founder of the Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Eden project.

Students will be introduced to botanical drawing on paper.

Whether you are an experienced painter or not this art course is accessible to everyone. The course will take place in the beautiful light Garden Room in Boconnoc House and around the grounds of the estate.
