What is botanical art: Needle painting with botanical theme

Botanical art ranges from very specific botanical illustration – with tightly defined style and approach, through to artistic representation of fungi, flowers, seaweeds and all things botanical. Botanical artwork using embroidery/ needle painting is one of many approaches welcomed by the SSBA. Differing styles abound from the very formal and traditional Chinese embroideries through to representations of gardens.

It would be marvellous to have examples of a wide range of media and styles in our exhibitions. Please encourage your friends, relatives and colleagues who do any forms of botanical art to join us in The Scottish Society of Botanical Art and help it achieve its aims.
