Viv Walkington

I am an artist who is passionate about the natural world around us. Whether it`s landscapes, birds, or flowers, either painted in watercolour or created in layers of paper, I enjoy being both a painter and a crafter. I find it rewarding to help others release their own unique creativity, to learn new ways of doing things and therefore move on with their own creative visions. So, come and join us and be creative in the beautiful surroundings and the special atmosphere that is to be found at Penhurst.

The Fine Art of Paper Flowers

There is something special about creating with paper. Come and join in crafting realistic looking flowers out of crepe paper, wire and paint, dipping into a magical botanical world with twists to captivate the imagination. If you like attention to detail and enjoy using your hands to create in a slow methodical way, this will captivate you and hopefully inspire you to continue with this spectacular craft after you leave the retreat.
