Join our Art & Embroidery Workshop

Enjoy a day of art and inspiration in the beautiful grounds of Cromlix this Summer. Join us on Sunday, 11th August and discover the beauty of flowers, as Edinburgh artists Jenny Matthews RSW and Lucy Freeman teach a floral watercolour painting and embroidery workshop.

You’ll spend the morning painting flowers from the garden under the guidance of Jenny, followed by a delicious two course lunch in the Glasshouse Restaurant before learning contemporary floral embroidery with Lucy.

For the rest of the afternoon, you’ll be free to explore both arts with Jenny and Lucy on hand to offer individual tutoring. Nature, beauty and tranquility are assured during this immersive day of creativity.
