CAVERN ART COURSE (article first published : 2005-04-8)

Enjoy the famous hospitality of The Cavern, a family hotel set in a magnificent valley adjoining Royal Natal National Park in the northern Drakensberg. The beautifully thatched buildings are set in colourful gardens and close to wonderful walks in the mountains.

Gill Condy and Elsa Pooley combine their respective talents as botanical artists and author of field guides to provide a memorable botanical art course in the mountains. With three meals a day and lavish teas, the artists are free to concentrate on their work in the large, well-lit conference room. Plants are easily sourced from the Cavern gardens and surrounding mountains and participants can enjoy walks with Elsa at the end of the day.

Whether for beginner or established botanical artist, the course promises to be informative and inspirational. Numbers are limited so early booking is advised.

Comments from April 2004 course students include: “³I am a beginner and benefited from all aspects of instruction. Elsa Pooley and Gill Condy were inspiring, patient and their passion and knowledge of Botanical Art is excellent. Elsa¹s knowledge of plants is phenomenal and this added to the overall exceptional visit to the Berg. The Cavern venue was the perfect setting for this course. Will definitely return. Please continue to run similar such courses!²

The course runs from April 17 to 22. Reservations through The Cavern on 036 438 6270, email: cavern@iafrica.com or visit www.cavernberg.co.za
