Classes and Workshops

Throughout the year I offer a range of Botanical watercolour painting classes and workshops, ranging from one-off session, to longer courses. They’re all advertised via social media, so do follow me (@pennysandersonart) or just send me an email ( for regular updates.


These two-hours sessions offer people the chance to try Botanical painting, before committing to a regular course. During the class we will look at composition, drawing, watercolour technique and painting. 

Suitable for beginners or more experienced artists
No materials necessary
Beverages included


Regular course
This series of three-hour classes is a natural progression from the Taster session, but is also suitable for people who would like to join without having attended an introduction. Structured over six weeks, each session will focus on a different project every week, and include a variety of skills as well as a more in-depth look at Botanical techniques.

Suitable for beginners or more experienced artists
Three hours, once a week over six weeks
No materials necessary
Beverages and a sweet included
£170pp for six, three-hour sessions



These seasonal pop-up events are a lovely way of having a go at watercolour, while focussing on a particular theme such as Spring Flowers, Roses, Forest Floor, and Christmas Cards. The sessions are held at different venues in East and West Sussex throughout the year and some are combined with afternoon tea, to make it a really special treat!

Group events
I’m also available to teach groups on an independent/commercial basis, just contact me for details.
