Temple of Flora - Botanical Assemblage

Sunday 17th May – 1.30-4pm, $45+bf


A sumptuous workshop in Botanical Assemblage. Create a plant based artwork working with fresh and dried botanical specimens gathered from around Banks Peninsula. Along the way we'll explore the curious overlapping art historical traditions of Botanical Art, Vanitas and Memento Mori.


Sarah Amazinnia is a Botanic Designer and Artist. Plants are the basis of my creative practice. I grow many of the botanical specimens I work with and forage through a network of old gardens and discovered landscapes. I work from my Lyttelton based gallery and studio.


Price includes all botanical specimens. Please BYO scissors and secateurs/handheld clippers.

Booking essential through Eventbrite.
