As well as being a teaching and research facility for Trinity’s Botany department, the garden provides the perfect atmosphere and inspiration for a variety of extra-mural courses throughout the academic year. Learn more about the botanical art,  woodcarving and gardening courses which are held annually at the garden and available for the general public.

Botanical Art with Ida Mitrani

Ida Mitrani is influenced by concepts and theories of plant culture in the current environmental crisis, including plant blindness. She explores the relationship and the interaction between humans, plants and technology, and looks at the function and meaning of weeds in today’s society. By bringing the viewer’s focus to the vegetal world in an evocative and thoughtful way, she makes the familiar more visible.

In her botanical art teaching Ida explores the fascinating geometry and patterns in plants.
