    Botanical artist and fabric designer Deborah Wace gave a talk to the Friends on 14 October about her art which is inspired by Tasmania's unique botanical heritage. During the presentation she screened this documentary on her Artist in Residency  at Recherche Bay in far south Tasmania and her 2017/18 Churchill Fellowship to study the early French botanical collections from Tasmania which are held in herbaria in Europe. This research has enabled her to create a new body of artwork for fabric. Click on the link to view the video which is 28 minutes long.
