Ages 12+/adults, Intergenerational audience welcomed. Max 10 per session. Materials supplied.
Look at the plant world in a new light! Participants will draw a plant or part there-of, while learning how to identify Irish plants in particular, know how they work and examine their value to society. The aim is to start an irresistible curiosity about the plants that surround us. Included will be a brief history of botanical art. You don’t need to have drawing skills for this meeting of science and art, just a sense of curiosity!
