Painting and Studying Insect Lifecycles


18 April 2015 09:30 - 19 April 2015 16:30

Location: Slimbridge Wetland Centre, Gloucestershire, GL2 7BT, UK.

Event description

This water colour painting weekend will pay homage to this incredible natural transformation.

Cath and course participants will discuss how this mysterious process manifests itself, in a selection of specific insects. Each fascinating stage of metamorphosis will be studied in all its beauty and wonder.

As with Cath's other courses, each student will have access to their own high powered microscopes, as well as her large selection of insect specimens and macro photos, to study the hidden beauty of this incredible process.

Participants will then use either microscopes or macro photographs to produce a detailed and unique homage to every stage of this amazing event...from egg to adult!

The course will take place in the McNeice Room in the fantastic surroundings of WWT Slimbridge. This room overlooks the wetlands and is a truly inspirational setting.
