Workshops focus on the fact that drawing is a skill we all possess and can be a great source of self-expression and escapism! Individual tutoring, Biro drawing tips and advice are given by Jane throughout the workshop, as well as encouraging self-confidence to continue drawing. Her workshops offer an informal and enjoyable atmosphere for all ages, in the inspirational surroundings of Thought Foundation gallery.

In corporate partnership with the Born Free Foundation, these workshops see 25% of Jane's workshop fee donated to BFF for their vital work conserving endangered species.
