Join artist and photographer William Arnold for a botanically themed artists’ day out, inspired by Abel Rodriguez’ work in Gäa: Holistic Science And Wisdom Tradition.

Walking from Newlyn Art Gallery to The Exchange in Penzance, workshop participants will collect local plant species, identify and catalogue them, using lumen and cyanotype photography to produce a beautiful collection of photographic images.

The workshop will start at Newlyn Art Gallery and include a leisurely picnic on the green, before ambling along the seafront towards The Exchange, allowing for specimen collection from both land and shore.

This workshop is for adults and suitable for all skill levels. Please wear appropriate clothing and foot wear.  All materials and picnic lunch included.

The images created in the workshop will be on display in The Engine Room from 11 May – 15 June, after which workshop participants can collect their work to take home.

£48 per person, booking via eventbrite
