Contemplating Home: Photography Workshop @ UC Botanical Garden
Oct 7 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

In this contemplative photography workshop, we will consider what it means to be at home in an ecosystem. If we are not from the Bay Area originally, which plants remind us of home? Which plants make us feel welcome here? Which plants enliven our kitchens and our memories? Join us for a sensory exploration of the garden, a home away from home. 

Any and all equipment are invited, including DSLRs, mobile phones, point-and-shoot, polaroid, and pinhole cameras. We will emphasize the process of art making and the cultivation of awe over technical considerations. Open to beginning and experienced students.
