Observations on Common Plants


Observations on Common Plants

July 18th to August 31st

Artist Kate Houghton started out as a sculptor and it is perhaps this which drives her interest in the structure of plants. She is committed to the role drawing can play in gaining a deeper understanding the natural world. Her exhibition will showcase many plants native to the British Isles.

Please note that the exhibition will not be accessible on Wednesday 21st August.

Associated workshop:

Saturday August 17th 2013

10am to 4pm at the Botanic Garden

A day exploring plants from the Botanic Garden collection.
Tuition will be given through demonstration and simple exercises designed to build up speed and confidence in capturing some of the essential features of these incredible structures.

Over the past few years she has led watercolour painting courses on native flora for the Field Studies Council and at Brantwood, Ruskin’s home in Cumbria.
