Explorers Outdoors – Seeds for the Future

Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh

With RBGE Creative Programmes and Art Buds Collective

A beautiful, mysterious, unknown seed is found. What is it? Magical? Funny? Edible? What will it become?

Join us at RBGE Creative Programmes for a morning inspired by the glorious studies of seeds and fruits by Levon Biss. Through Levon’s work we will imagine the most amazing seeds, and how they might transform our lives.

Together we will observe, forage, and explore ideas through drawings with natural inks. These will be transformed into sculptural marvels, using air drying clay and handmade papers.

We would love participants to bring along some big ideas and be ready to develop their artistic skills. They will learn how artists take inspiration from both the natural World and scientific study, how to design, and transform natural materials into new creations.

This activity will take place mostly outdoors, therefore, we advise that you dress for the weather as the Botanics can often be windy and wet, or hot and sunny!

Art Buds Collective is dedicated to the delivery of sustainable arts education for children across Edinburgh. Their classes promote sustainability and celebrate the creative journey.
