Practical Course in Botanical Art

There is a unique opportunity to be a part of  a two-day course in botanical art hosted by
well-known botanical artist, Ms Holly Somerville (see http://www.hollysomerville.com/). The two-day practical course will be based at the beautiful Trinity College Botanic Gardens at Dartry, Dublin 6 (nearest Luas Station, Milltown) on the 9th and 10th September.  All sessions start at 10.30 a.m. and end at 4.00 p.m. Tea and coffee will be provided (but not lunch) and materials will be supplied.

Holly is a trained botanist and illustrator, and will give drawing and layout guidance before getting you started with detailed watercolour painting using the rich variety of subject matter available at the gardens.  All abilities will be catered for, as each participant will receive individual tuition. 

To apply contact Sophia – botany@tcd.ie but please be quick as there a limited number of spaces.



The course will cost €70 per day or €130 for both days.


Full payment in advance is essential and required to secure your place. Please note that all monies are non-refundable except in the event of course cancellation. Cheques should be made payable to ‘TCD no. 1 account’ and sent to The Executive Officers, Discipline of Botany, Trinity College, Dublin 2.
