Musical Plants After School Workshop


Mon 26 Feb 2024 - Tue 27 Feb 2024


4.30 pm - 5.30 pm


60 minutes


Free. Bookings Essential.

Have you ever made music with a marigold? Composed with a chrysanthemum? Or listened to some lavender?

In this workshop, we will introduce participants to Musical Plants and devise ways of playing them to create new musical compositions. Participants will play through a series of creative exercises that explore how this technology works and what else it could be used for.

Musical Plants are unique digital instruments made from real living plants! When you connect with the plants and touch the leaves, you control a computer to make your own beautiful and unique melodies. It’s time to be surprised, delighted, and captivated by a magical world of musical plants. 

No prior musical experience is necessary as Musical Plants is an instrument that is yet to be mastered by anyone!

These workshops will involve music-making, drawing, design, and technology.

This event takes place outside in the Bunjil Place Plaza and will continue as planned unless weather conditions prevent us from presenting a safe and enjoyable event. In those instances, events will be relocated indoors if possible. Should we need to cancel for any reason, patrons will be notified as soon as possible via email and/or phone.

Please remember to be SunSmart and slip, slop, slap, seek and slide!
