Victorian Nature Study at the Ebenezer Maxwell Mansion

March 9, 2012

In the Victorian era, photography was a new invention and not widespread. Therefore, to record their findings, botanists reached for a pen or paintbrush to produce very detailed and often beautiful illustrations of plants and animals. Today, these nature studies are admired for their color and lavishness. At the time, they served to educate and to record new discoveries.

On Sunday, March 18th from 1:30 – 4:30 pm, the Ebenezer Maxwell Mansion will host a workshop to learn about and create your own nature watercolor, led by instructor Jency Latta. All materials will be provided. Cookies and tea will be served.

Call 215-438-1861 to make a reservation. The workshop is $45 for non-members and $40 for members.
