About this Event

Join Gabi from Buenezas at the Garden’s Earth Day Celebration to learn how to make botanical inks from plants, tree barks and flowers that grow in South Florida. Using very easy and accessible techniques we will extract colors that will inspire you to do the same at home. As a group we will share stories and our relationship to the plants that will inspire our painting exercise. Each participant will take a sample home. This class is open to families, children must come accompanied by an adult. Bring a small 1 or 2 oz container or dropper to take some ink home!

Gabriela Serra (she/they) is a multidisciplinary artist, certified Restorative Justice circle-keeper and urban farmer born in Caracas, Venezuela and currently based in Miami, Florida. Her practice comprises filmmaking, photography, and community facilitation (through workshops and support circles), and focuses on the exploration and regeneration of relationships—between humans and non-humans, our bodies and the land, our present selves with our ancestral histories.

With community, family and friends, she is able to co-create intergenerational spaces and projects in which oral tradition is practiced and honored, where we value the love and care of neighbors making food and tending gardens together, where we can be vulnerable with each other. Although her art is often ephemeral, the relationships and connections formed remain transformative.

Tickets: $25 per person
