Florilegium Virtual Tour

View special archive of our 2021 exhibition at the Pannett Art Gallery

During the Summer of 2021 we mounted a special exhibition at the Pannett Art Gallery called First Flowers: Joseph Banks’ Florilegium, featuring prints of the beautiful engravings created from paintings of the plants collected on Cook’s Endeavour voyage around the world (1768-1771).

To record this exhibition for posterity we have created a virtual tour for you to explore with full details of:

  • Florilegium prints

  • Explanatory information boards

  • Plant embroidery by local stitchers

  • Video of how embroidery tent was created

  • Work by contemporary botanical artists
