Join a two-day workshop exploring the world of spices. Experience and learn first-hand the techniques of a skilled botanical artist and create your own work of art.
Day 1 Begin by hearing Dashorst talk about his botanical illustrations, followed by a guided viewing of key works from the exhibition. After lunch at the Gallery, take a spice tour of the Adelaide Botanic Garden and sketch or photograph the many examples of spices on hand in preparation for the rendering of your original work of art on Day 2.
Day 2 Learn about the support materials required by the botanical artist – paints, colours, pencils. Use your sketches and photographs to create your work. Participants are recommended to bring a camera.
When: 15 & 16 August, 10am–4pm
