postheadericon Jennie's Leafworks - formal or free

Jennie Ashmore gives the final demonstration of the season on February 12, when she will show how she produces Leafworks, her brilliant collages using materials from woodlands and gardens.

Two recent examples of Jennie's Leafworks. See many more on her website at

Jennie writes: "I am an established artist known for Leafworks, which are unique collages using pressed leaves and flowers from the woods and gardens of South West Scotland and beyond. My works, often quite formal in design, are reminiscent of patchwork and can also be free and experimental, using watercolour alongside dried material. The driving force behind my work is the desire to celebrate the natural world and is my attempt to capture some of the beauty and vibrancy I find."

You can book now for Jennie's follow-up workshop on February 26th (no need to book for the February 11 demonstration). Contact Martine Berlemont, or download the details and application form here
