VIRTUAL PLANT LIFE DRAWING WORKSHOP
"Your intuitive powers increase when you are with plants because your mind is silenced and you become more aware in the present moment.” Sanchita Pandey
During this time of great change and uncertainty many of us have felt soothed, uplifted and grounded by the Natural world both inside and outside. During this challenging time nature has taken on a deeper importance in our lives. Many feel more awakened to our interconnectivity with and gratitude for the creativity of Nature to keep us healthy and nourished.
After over 7 years of hosting our PATTERNTY workshops in person and feeling increasingly limited to venues in London we are excited to be able to invite our PATTERNIST Community around the globe to join us for our beloved 'Plant Life Drawing Workshop' – now available online from the comfort of your own home!
Together we'll be taking some deep breaths and marvelling at the inspiring patterns and textures of humble house plants and blooms. We invite you to take an hour or so away from your busy to-do lists to marvel the beauty of the spaces in-between leaves, stalks and petals. We'll be zooming in as we celebrate the inspiring and interconnected textures and ponder the plant and flower patterns which curiously repeat in our own human anatomy.
Flow + timings
We will begin with a short 10 minute talk from PATTERNITY cofounder Anna Murray about her love for Nature and the value of seeing and feeling the beauty of patterns that surround us. The talk will be followed by 45 minutes of varied drawing exercises and we will close with a 15 minute reflective exercise, followed by a closing and time for sharing and a short Q&A. We have left some space at the end for conversation for those not zoomed out!
Preparation + Materials
All you will need is an arrangement on a table or clear surface of several house plants and / or flowers and leaves if you are inside – or an area of diverse flora and fauna if you are outside.
Please bring your own drawing kits, a variety of papers, pens, pencils, paints as you wish.
*This workshop is designed to be supportive, inclusive and suitable for everyone - from beginners to more advanced drawers and those from 'non-creative' backgrounds (we believe everyone is naturally creative!)
Pricing + Accessibility
A Zoom link will be sent 1 hour prior to the live workshop
To make this as accessible as possible, exchange for participation will be available on a sliding scale. If cost is a barrier to attend, please reach out (firstname.lastname@example.org), especially if you are a member of a marginalised community.
