‘Boatanical’ brings together both the nautical and floral elements of the Cornish environment in a display of 3 dimensional drawings made from recycled materials. Through involving the local community and running workshops in local schools and as part of the Princess pavilions ‘Make and take’ workshops we hope to create hundreds of ‘Boatanical’ 3D flowers that can become part of our own Flower show installation on the 18th March, (the work will be installed on the 16th March). The show will be displayed in the gardens of the Princess Pavilions and will coincide with the spring flower show. It will remain open to the public for the duration of the Spring Festival, until the 17th April.   Making ‘Boatanicals’ We would encourage anyone interested to make their own ‘Boatanical’ flower. As your flower will be outside for a month it will need to be made out of robust, weather enduring materials. Using old plastic bottles work well, as does coloured plastic or plastic coated paper etc. We recommend that you make the head of your flower the size of a dinner plate and the rest of your flower (stem and leaves) in proportion to this. During the week beginning the 6th March we will use the hut, at Wellington Terrace, Falmouth as a Boatanicals Studio, a flower and boat building factory! If you wish to join in the ‘Boatanicals Studio’ us to make your ‘boatanical’ please email McKerrow, Tilly t.mckerrow@falmouth.ac.uk. Any one is welcome to participate. Please bring along any flowers you have made on the 16th March between 10.00 and 11.00, we will then plant them out between 11.00 and 1.00.   You ‘boatanical’ flower could be inspired by
