    Botanical Art

An inspirational and informative seminar day exploring the history and contemporary practice of Botanical Art. Visitors will have the chance to listen to a series of engaging talks including ‘A History of Botanical Art’ by the RHS Lindley Library Art Curator. Botanical illustrators, including RHS Gold-medal winners, will be demonstrating their techniques in watercolour, pen and ink, pencil and painting on vellum. Visitors will be able to speak to the artists as well as watch them work.

During the day there will be scheduled tours of RHS Lindley Library and visitors are also encouraged to explore the RHS London Plant & Art Fair, which will feature displays of judged botanical art by more than 40 artists. The seminar day will conclude with a drinks reception in Lindley Library with artist demonstrators and exhibitors from the Botanical Art Show.
