Experimental drawing with botanical subject matter 

Suitable for kids aged 8-12, this sketchy-crafty workshop is full of imagination, creativity, and inventive fun!

Make your own family of ‘sketchy-creatures’, inspired by scientific illustrations. Wind pipe-cleaner legs to Banksia-people. Glue gumnut eyes onto seedpod families. Make crazy-bird-monsters with leaves and sticks.

Then draw your creations with mixed media and collage, using experimental drawing techniques and experiments with the early Renaissance technique of ‘pouncing’. Invent names for your creatures. Where do they live? What do they eat? What do they do for fun?

Take your creations home to share!

These workshops are capped at 10 participants.
