Event description

Description

Come learn the secret language of plants and become a master of identifying the flora around you!

This intimate hands-on workshop will start by teaching you the principles of structural botany enabling you to learn to recognize leaf morphology and types. We will be using a reference guide I created specifically for this workshop which you get to keep. I will share numerous leaf samples of various different leaf types to help you understand these subtle differences between plants so you can have a keen understanding of what makes them unique and enable you to build upon your plant knowledge.

Our morning will end with a fun botanical printing exercise where you will create your own artistic nature prints using native foliage gathered and identified at the Well of Ancient Mysteries.

You will receive a complimentary guide I've created specially for this workshop - Tropical Alchemy Botanical Plant Identification Guide: A Simple Introduction to Structural Botany & Secret Language of Plants. You will also have access to art supplies and materials for our botanical nature prints.

Our workshop will take place at the historic Well of Ancient Mysteries. The Well of Ancient Mysteries is an archaeological treasure; artifacts, fossils, and a freshwater underground spring have been uncovered there revealing a site that is believed to have been used by our ancient ancestors as a sacred ceremonial site. This place is sacred to many, please bear that in mind when visiting and be respectful of it's history.
