Come and celebrate the Worldwide Day of Botanical Art this Friday. View exquisite botanical art from Scotland and across the globe, featuring the Flora Scotia exhibition of contemporary artworks of Scottish native plants, and the amazing International slideshow featuring 1000 works of art by over 700 artists from 25 countries.
Many of the artists from Flora Scotia will be on hand to talk about their work and demonstrate the different skills botanical illustrators use to capture the natural world so beautifully.
Activities for adults and children will be available throughout the afternoon including the opportunity to try your hand at some painting techniques and help us make a giant botanical mural. Finally, enjoy a walk with an expert botanicst to a lovely corner of the garden brimming with native plants. Find out about their weird and wonderful stories — what's edible, and what's not.
Venue: The John Hope Gateway. Admission free.
