Kew Gardens is the perfect place to appreciate plant patterns and shapes that occur as spirals, radial patterns, polygons, abstract patterns, repetitive patterns and mirror images.
The course will start with an indoor talk showing how patterns and shapes can be found amongst shoots, leaves, flowers, fruits and bark throughout the year.
After lunch, the group will venture out into the Gardens to see examples of plant patterns during springtime at Kew. Throughout the walk, there will be opportunities to pause to capture eye-catching images on a camera or a smartphone.
Heather will provide relevant tips about best camera angles, lighting and composition.
This course will appeal to photographers and artists, as well as anyone who has a passion for plants and wants to discover more about their fascinating patterns and designs.
