Artwork by Zoe Fitchet

Join us on Friday, 5 July, for an enriching and educational workshop by Wildlife Artist of the Year finalist Zoe Fitchet, focused on capturing the unique species and landscape of the African savanna.

Workshop attendees will have access to a set of 72 Derwent charcoal pencils and sketching and drawing paper and will be given a tin of 6 Derwent graphic pencils to take home.

For this workshop, we’ll be focusing on one of our core species – the mighty elephant. Zoe will work with attendees to recreate some detailed elements of her original piece – a postcard sized depiction of a grand African tusker.

Elephants are a very popular subject for wildlife artists, not least our founder, David Shepherd CBE – who became affectionately known as ‘the man who loved giants’. So, don’t miss this opportunity to learn more about how to draw and capture these incredible animals on paper.
