ONLINE - A Taste of Ardington: Floral Fun with Karen Carter - Wed 20th September 2023 at 10am
Join us, FREE OF CHARGE, to experience a Taste of Ardington
Due to the interactive nature of this workshop, we would encourage students to participate live and work along with the tutor, if possible.
A video playback service will be provided to all students for 60 days.
Tutor: Karen Carter
Wed 20th September 10am - 11am
This LivePlus™ online workshop is suitable for students of all abilities. This is a work-along workshop and so we would encourage students to have their materials to hand, ready to participate live during the class.
You are invited to experience a taste of Ardington at this FREE fun & relaxed online workshop with Karen Carter.
We will spend a joyful hour together on Zoom looking at ways to create lively, colourful flowers & foliage using a variety of creative materials and tools. Be ready to raid the kitchen cupboards and rummage through your recycling as we unlock a little burst of creativity with some painting, printing, layering & spattering!
No experience is necessary and you definitely don’t need to be able to draw. This is not a botanical painting class, it is all about mark making, experimenting, and having fun. We hope it will be the perfect opportunity to learn a little more about Ardington too!

All Ardington ONLINE classes and talks are accompanied by their own online blackboard. Helpful and easy to use, they enable students and tutors to share resources, ideas and photos with each other – just as you would in a classroom environment.
Karen will offer personalised critique / feedback via the blackboard for any work uploaded by students within thirty days of the class ending. You will be sent the link to access your blackboard in the week before your class begins and will have access for at least sixty days after the class ends.
After the live session has finished on Zoom, we will share the link to view the recording on the blackboard. You can watch the recording as many times as you like for sixty days.
