Cinnamomum camphora is one of the most populous trees in Shanghai and also among the oldest around, some trees standing at the same spot for over 300 years. We’ll collect leaves in the first workshop and get acquainted with this remarkable plant through observation and drawing. In the second workshop we’ll consider some of the environmental forces that have shaped Camphor’s evolution through theater games and collage artworks.
