Exhibition: RHS Botanical Art & Photography Show 2022 (9 - 29 April 2022, Galleries 1 – 3)
Available: Free entrance for learners/community groups, workshops, tours

The Gallery Learning department led tours teach participants fun facts about the artists and their process and encourage discussions about the exhibition, giving participants the opportunity to share their opinion.
Participants are then given the opportunity to use our on-site learning studio to participate in group workshops in response to exhibition themes. They will get to use the exhibition as a jumping off point to invent their own fantasy plants collaboratively with other participants. They will combine observational drawing and collage, and learn scientific facts about plants, their functions, and cultural significance.
