“An Artistic and Scientific Appreciation of Metamorphosis – the Beautiful and Mysterious Lifecycle of Butterflies and Moths”


A Cath Hodsman watercolour painting workshop suitable for all levels.


Metamorphosis is a truly unique and magical natural phenomenon. So little is known about how it happens and yet, the result of each stage is a wonder to behold... This watercolour painting workshop will use art to pay homage to this incredible natural transformation.


Cath and course participants will study how this mysterious process manifests itself, in butterflies and moths. Each fascinating stage of metamorphosis will be studied in all its beauty and wonder. Each student will have access to their own high-powered microscopes, as well as her large selection of ethically sourced insect specimens and macro photos, to study the hidden beauty of this incredible process.


Participants will then use microscopes, specimens and macro photographs to produce a detailed and unique watercolour painting that pays homage to this amazing process. You don’t have to be an expert in either watercolour painting or entomology; you just need to be fascinated by both.


Cath Hodsman is a British wildlife and natural history artist. She is one of the U.K’s foremost entomological artists, illustrators and teachers and is an Associate Member of the Royal Society of Biology. Based in the Cotswolds, she has exhibited and showcased her art or taught at many relevant esteemed venues throughout her career.

Cath Hodsman,  a Cotswold-based Wildlife & Natural History artist, who specialises in painting & sketching invertebrates and counts Buckingham Palace amongst her clients, will be leading this unique and fascinating day.

This sketching workshop is aimed at watercolour painting beginners and for those who want to learn more about the hidden worlds that are all around us. It will examine the essential and fascinating relationship between pollinating insects and the plants that they live in, on and around. It will look at how plants provide food for insects, in return for pollination and how the insects obtain this food.
 
Each student will have exclusive use of their own dedicated microscope, magnifying glasses and macro photographs, as well as Cath’s own huge insect (ethically sourced) specimen collection, to look at the anatomy of insects, in order to produce a unique and detailed watercolor painting.

An equipment list will be sent out on booking a place on the course

Metamorphosis is a truly unique and magical natural phenomenon. So little is known about how it happens and yet, the result of each stage is a wonder to behold.....

This watercolour painting day is a continuation from the first workshop on metamorphosis held on the 7th Aug 2021, where Cath introduced this amazing natural process. (Not necessary to have been on the previous workshop to enjoy the second)

Cath and course participants will study the second half of this mysterious phenomenon of nature and how it manifests itself in butterflies and moths.

As with Cath’s other courses, each student will have access to their own high-powered microscopes, as well as her large selection of ethically sourced insect specimens and macro photos, to study the hidden beauty of this incredible process.

Participants will then use microscopes, specimens and macro photographs to either continue to paint the piece they started on the 7th Aug workshop, or for new students to start a fresh and exciting study.

You don’t have to be an expert in either watercolour painting or entomology; you just need to be fascinated by both.
