Botanic Residency Program

The Botanic Residency Project is a program designed to engage Melbourne based artists and makers who specifically use natural fibres or plant materials or artists working with botanical themes.

At Plant Craft Cottage, we cherish the handmade and value the sharing and passing on of traditional and contemporary knowledge and skills. The Botanic Residency Project is another forum for attracting people to the cottage and sharing knowledge and skills. The project sees various artists or specialist craft groups create ‘mini’ exhibitions in the cottage throughout the year. Artists will be creating work onsite and sharing their artistic insights and skills with visitors to the Plant Craft Cottage along with teaching workshops and presenting illustrated talks.

The Botanic Residency Project will also provide the artists with an opportunity to be enriched and inspired by the beauty and magic of the gardens.
