The Burren in County Clare on the west coast of Ireland is a breathtakingly beautiful place in any season, but never more so than in May – the time of year when so many of the rare plants that make this landscape so special are in bloom. The starkness of the limestone pavement comes alive with the colours of orchids, gentians, burnet rose, mountain avens, bloody cranesbill and many more. The Burren College of Art is located in the heart of the Burren, just outside Ballyvaughan. Superb studio space, combined with a friendly, encouraging atmosphere, superb homemade food in the café, a well-stocked library, and a wide variety of accommodation – not to mention the stunning surroundings – make this a perfect spot for an intensive five day course in botanical art, without the interruptions of home and business. If you have never been to the Burren in springtime, this is an ideal opportunity to immerse yourself in a very special experience.

A demonstration on painting leaves at the Burren College of Art
I am delighted to be returning to the Burren College of Art in May to teach a workshop in botanical art. This five-day workshop is designed for those who have some experience in the basics of botanical art and flower painting and would like to further develop their skills through an intensive five days of drawing and painting. Emphasis is on individual tuition and allowing students to work at their own pace and level of experience.
Burren College of Art
There are many places in Ireland that can simply take your breath away. Others inspire you. Some make you feel energized, creative and refreshed, while others bring out all that is best in you. For many people though, only the Burren can sum up all that. The college is located very close to the village of Ballyvaughan.
