Plants with a Purpose

Our 2019 Exhibition included over 60 original framed paintings that showcased plants with a food or medicinal value, or that can be used for many of our materials.  The artworks were supported by large hanging information panels highlighting the many uses of plants and the process of photosynthesis.  There were also displays of items made from bamboo and yarns that are dyed using plant products.
