About Louise

Based in Grantham, Louise spent six years at art school, three years of which were at Kingston University where she completed a degree in Illustration. Having graduated in 1992, Louise has been illustrating children’s books for various top publishers ever since and has recently started teaching adults and children. She explains: “Drawing trains the eye to observe, opens the mind and is a fun and therapeutic activity. There will be lots to inspire us in the vineyard this summer – in particular the detail and colour of the wild flowers, vine leaves and English roses will make fantastic subjects for pencil drawing.”

To ensure the quality of your personal experience, group size will be limited to 8.
