"Copşa Mare in Transylvania is rapidly becoming one of those 'must-go' destinations for teachers & students of botanical art." 

Katherine Tyrrell
Botanical Art & Artists

We hold just eight classes a year and guarantee a maximum of 6 students in each class, so please book early. Your deposit is fully & promptly refundable if you cancel at least 3 months before the class begins. 


If you are joining a class for the first time, and are not already a student of one of our tutors, please let us know a bit about yourself as a botanical artist. This helps us prepare for the class.

We are unable to accommodate pets & non-participating partners. 

A reasonable level of fitness is needed for fieldwork in this hilly landscape.

For availability & prices

please write to James de Candole
