Live Online Botanical Workshop with Bealtaine Festival: In(ter)dependence

Meet artist Ida Mitrani for a drawing workshop based on concepts and theories of plant culture in the current environmental crisis. Ida will inspire you to think about the in(ter)dependence between humans, plants and the overconsumption of synthetic materials. Through a series of quick, practical demonstrations on accurate plant representation and colour chart preparation, you will create your own hybrid plant using recycled materials combined with collage and mixed media.

Pencils (HB or 2B)
Paints (watercolour or acrylics)
Brushes (mixed sizes)
Cartridge paper or watercolour paper (A4 or A3)
Tracing paper (A4)
Craft knife
Magazines, photos, recycled materials i.e. plastic bottles, milk cart, fruit/vegetable net etc..
