Beautiful eco dyeing by Nat Billing


For six days only you will have the opportunity to drop in to the Botanique Art Bazaar, located in the Richard Randall Studio at the Mt Coot-tha Botanic Gardens. Here you will see the results of the collaboration of 20 artists, all inspired by the natural environment and dedicated to representing all things with a botanical influence. They have, and practice, an acute awareness of the natural environment and a conscience of organic production. Utilizing recycled paper and re-purposed fabrics and producing botanical images on textiles, print and canvas the artists will exhibit a collection of works that truly showcases the beauty of nature's bounty. The works will include jewellery, handbags, papercraft, sculptures, textiles, ceramics, canvas and more.

Here's just a glimpse of what you can expect to see at the Bazaar:

Jewellery by Clare Poppi


Clare Poppi is an artist living and working in Brisbane. Her primary practice is in jewellery & metal-smithing, focusing on sustainable design and wearable art. Her pieces range from jewellery growing live grass to nature inspired designs using recycled metals and bio-degradable components. The Growing Jewellery Project is a major aspect of Clare's ethical practice and involves her sending out growing jewellery to participants (locally & internationally) who look after the pieces for a time and document their experiences on her blog. The jewellery is intended to form a connection between the grower and nature, and when worn, the jewellery is a visible statement of environmental awareness and provokes conversation and dialogue.

Make sure you pop in to the Botanique Art Bazaar and pick up a unique, botanically themed gift for someone special and something for yourself - naturally!
