A very special chance to sketch in and around the grounds of a privately owned olive mill and art gallery not far from Béziers.

Surrounded by rows of beautiful olive trees, the stunning Domaine Pradines le Bas produces its own range of delicious products including oils and tapenades, which we will be able to sample as well as sketch.

Our sketching day starts at 10am and includes a lunch of local and traditional produce.
