Event description

Description

Participate in an intimate workshop for adults led by artist Alina Tang, exploring the significance of flowers in the exhibition FLORA and examining traditional Victorian meanings of flora.

Participants are invited to create their own individual Tussie Mussie – a small bouquet of flowers offered as a gift in the Victorian era, where each element represented a symbolic meaning – using an array of oral material including fresh blooms, dried flowers, dried herbs. All materials will be supplied.

The workshop will involve a guided exploration of the materials: their sensory experience, symbolic meanings, and discussion of traditional gift-giving practices.
