Young People Meet-Up:
Botanical Sculpture Workshop

Tickets to this event only include admission to the workshop. Please purchase tickets separately for General Admission and for the Special Exhibition.

Create your personalised botanical sculpture! Delve into the works of Yayoi Kusama and discover how they resonate with the forms of flowers and plants.

Nature is one of the key inspirations found in Kusama’s work, which often depict organic forms such as flowers, leaves, and plants. In this workshop, florist Cherie Yip will guide participants to observe Kusama’s use of colours, lines, and shapes and how they echo those found in nature. Using flowers and other material as medium, you will use different techniques and apply the basic concept of design to transform your observations and associations into a botanical sculpture. Yip will also share about how she commenced her career as a florist through various attempts and self-exploration.

The sculptures, created by the participants, each feature different and unique forms and characteristics. Just as Kusama once mentioned of her admiration for nature, ‘there are no objects more interesting. They are filled with all kinds of forms and colors. How vast and boundless the provisions of nature!’

This free event is for full-time students with a valid student card. Click on 'Register' to sign up.

About the Florist

Cherie Yip is the founder of THE SPRING IS HERE. With a background as a multi-disciplinary designer, her floral works showcase a unique aesthetic. Using seasonal flowers, foliage, and botanicals as the foundation of her floral designs, Yip experiments with unexpected materials and interprets floral design as distinct from the traditional atmosphere. She seeks to expand its possibility with the belief that every plant has its magical power to heal our souls and brighten the days of life.
