Waterton botanical art workshops popular again this year.

Posted by Michael Best on July 02, 2015 0 Comments

This year, the sixth consecutive year of botanical art workshops by Margaret Best at the Waterton Wild Flower Festival, two workshops were offered for the first time. The first was a two-day introduction to botanical art and the second was a three-day workshop for intermediate-level botanical artists. Both were very well attended.

In the introductory workshop the live specimen was the Alberta Rose (Rosa acicularis) and in the second workshop participants were offered a variety of wildflowers (sustainable specimens) borrowed from the Russells' ranch, Hawks Nest, just outside the park boundary. The Mariposa Lilly seemed to be the most popular specimen with the Alberta Rose a close second. The feedback from participants indicated that the workshops were, as in previous years, enjoyed by all.
