Join Julia to look over the shoulder of renowned botanical artists from the UK and beyond. In these 45 minutes sessions, delivered via Zoom, artists will talk through their favourite projects or botanical art techniques. Their presentations will be illustrated with examples of their artwork and/or technique demonstrations which will be followed by the opportunity for Q&A. Find out more on this link: Julia Trickey Talks Talks will be recorded and available to registrants 24 hours after the live session. They will then be available for 48 hours, making them accessible whatever your time zone!
