Plant identification is an essential skill required to develop an understanding of plants as a material.

Students designed, selected and curated a Plant Book to better understand plant knowledge in Greater Adelaide.

This project allowed students to understand of relations between the plant, their environmental functional and aesthetic uses and building tools to be able to continue this knowledge beyond this subject.

Botanic Plant Pressing

By searching, exploring and identifying, students were required to create a botanical plant pressing.

Students utilised traditional techniques to press specimens and applied analytical research to develop personal plant knowledge and plant identification techniques.
