Instructors: Wendy & Pam
Level: All levels
Botanical Subject(s): Nightshades – eggplants, tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, tomatillos
Workshop Description: It’s hard to believe that some of our favorite summer vegetables are in the same plant family, especially because they all look so different. We will explore what makes a plant in the same family (similar flowers for starters). Students can then plan a composition combining a few different fruits and vegetables or focus on one plant in this family. We also learn about the different edible and poisonous parts of these plants. Potatoes are the tubers connected to the roots, while tomatoes, eggplant, peppers and tomatillos are all fruits. Yes botanically speaking they are fruits, and not vegetables!
Our workshops include a set of pre-recorded videos for you to watch as you prepare for class, as well as recordings of each workshop session, delivered via email. We encourage collaboration and community, and we strive to create a safe virtual environment for everyone to draw together. We provide live demonstrations on the first day of a workshop and constructive critique of your work on the second day. ALL of the registration and video material for this workshop is delivered to you via email. Please be sure to add firstname.lastname@example.org to your email contacts so that you do not miss correspondence from us!
