Drawing directly from the lush native and exotic foliage at Puketarata Garden, this workshop will offer festival visitors an introduction to the timeless beauty of botanical art.
Tabatha holds a Doctorate in Fine Arts and has been teaching botanical art for nearly two decades. Her art practice includes painting, photography, installation and writing.
