This workshop is inspired by the Jameel Arts Centre gardens home to 33 species of trees from 7 different desert geographies from around the world. The workshop focuses on botany by way of rubbing patterns techniques. The participants discover and imagine the stories and histories behind these plants -some of which are as old as 200 years. The workshop is preceded by a tour of the exhibitions led by Head of Learning and Research, Uns Kattan.
Key workshop takeaways focus on looking at art but also on making and reflecting.
