The infinite and three-dimensional magnification of the stereo magnifier (binocular) makes tiny objects from the plant world, such as the stamens of a flower, large and "tangible". You can see the moist velvety texture of a surface and almost feel as if you could brush your fingertip over it! The "Binos", affectionately abbreviated in science, serve in the workshop as an observation instrument and tool to recognize the detailed fascination of different and unusual flower shapes, their components and nectaries and to transform them into artistic drawings.
The course is suitable for curious beginners as well as for advanced artists who want to take a new look at things. After a short introduction into the handling of the binoculars, you will draw what you have observed in magnification with professional support. In addition, you will learn all kinds of interesting facts about the flowers, their inhabitants and pollinators.
The instructor Yasumin Lermer is a draftswoman at the Botanical Garden Munich-Nymphenburg and can provide support at any level in the small group.
The workshop will take place as part of the Flower Power Festival 2023.
