National Science Week 2017

Botaniko hosted A Wondrous World – Botanical Art workshop at the University of Tasmania on Saturday, 26 August, as part of Science Week. Using fresh plant specimens, over 30 people,  in three sessions,  were shown how to use various  observational  techniques, including the dissecting microscope, to acquire  the details  needed to design and accomplish a scientific botanical  illustration. All participants were keen to try their hand at the various techniques.
