Join artist Madge Evers for a mushroom journaling workshop. The class will begin at the museum, where participants will make their own nature journals using a simple paper fold. Next, participants will go on a walk across the river to the Wantastiquet trails, where Evers will lead a nature observation and journaling program focused on finding and identifying mushrooms and recording them as drawings or spore prints.

Foraged materials inform the work of Madge Evers. She has been paying close attention to signs of fungi since 2015, when she began making mushroom spore print art. Learning of and seeing the Herbarium that Emily Dickinson created as a student inspired Evers to see the plants all around us with new eyes.

This event is presented in connection with the exhibit Madge Evers: The New Herbarium.

This program is for participants ages 14+, or child and parent pairs if children are ages 10+. All materials provided. Participation is limited to 15 people. Rain date: Sunday, October 30.

This is an in-person program.

ADMISSION: $50, $45 BMAC members
