Fine artist Brandon Lomax will facilitate public workshops during the opening weekend of the (Re)place exhibition. The workshop will guide participants in making simple sculptural clay forms. Your creation will be added to Lomax’s large-scale exhibition here at the California Botanic Garden. Participants of this workshop will also take home materials to create their own works of art for their garden. The clay provided will be infused with seeds from native plant species.
During the seven-month tenure of the show, the elements will degrade the unfired sculptures back into soil and seeds will sprout and blossom, replacing the sculptures that once stood in their place. Participants are encouraged to return to the Garden to witness the transformation of their sculptural works into native flora.
Be prepared to get your hands dirty! Adults and children are welcome to this approximately 1-hour workshop.
For everyone's safety, we ask that participants be prepared to wear face coverings and practice social distancing.
