Time: 10am - 11.30am
Location: Goodman Building Lecture Theatre, Adelaide Botanic Garden (E17 on the map)
In this Nature Festival event, join visual artist Louise Flaherty in a creative workshop to experience a deeper understanding of threatened native SA plants.
Through this creative workshop, experience a deeper understanding of threaten native SA plants with a visit to the Seed Centre's rare plant exhibition inside the rainforest glasshouse before returning to work on your postcard.
Explore individual plants though drawing/painting, writing and sound.
The workshop will involve a collective listening to a sound piece, introduction to some of South Australia’s most vulnerable plants being worked on with the SA Seed Conversation Centre, and producing a postcard of one of those plants to share the knowledge of this plant with a friend.
You will also have your own drawings made from the workshop to take home.
