Botanica: A Village Among the Oak Trees

Classes, Lessons, Workshops and Talks

15 Jan 2020 to 18 Jan 2020

Unleash your imagination as you create cubbies and craft creatures from natural materials gathered from the Gardens. Curated by artist Darryl Cordell and inspired by his childhood in the bush, this school holiday favourite brings families together to create a community village under old oak trees.

Transform palm fronds into roofs, bamboo into walls and construct flooring from sticks and leaves. Stop by the communal mud kitchen to cook up a feast and fashion new critters from clay, pods and seeds.
