Tane Andrews botanical illustration workshop




This summer at the Chinese Garden of Friendship, join 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art and Sydney artist Tane Andrews for a special one-off botanical workshop – over drinks and snacks!


In making artworks, Tane works with perishable organic materials including; flowers, living cocoons, wood, and water, as well as more durable products such as pearls, marble and bronze.

In this workshop, small groups of participants will work with Tane to go on an adventure through the Chinese Garden of Friendship and select and sketch inspiration from the Garden.  Learn about the skills used by Tane – including botanical identification, sketching and colour – to re-create nature and create your own botanical illustration to take home, all over drinks and snacks at the Gardens by Lotus.

This special one-off event has limited places available (bookings required here), with a drink on arrival and all supplies included – and is free with entry to the Chinese Garden of Friendship.

Sat 30th Nov, 3pm-5pm, Chinese Garden of Friendship, Pier St, Darling Harbour


Tane Andrews’ workshop is produced by 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art in partnership with the Chinese Garden of Friendship. 4A’s artist-led workshops throughout 2019 are supported by Create NSW’s Audience Development Fund, a devolved funding program administered by Museums & Galleries of NSW on behalf of the NSW Government.
