About the Event

Carnivorous plants are often portrayed as scary people-eating monsters, but in reality they’re quite beautiful. Their trapping leaves are an amazing sight to see, and their fantastic colours, textures and shapes are inspiring. 

The session will start with a short presenation by Laura Skates (Botanist and carnivorous plant expert) before investigating some real life carnivorous plants and creating some unique and interesting botanical drawings and collage.  Read Laura's recent blog post to see what this is all about: http://lauraskates.com/blog/2021/1/31/carnivorous-plant-art-workshops-swan-libraries
