Botanical Watercolour Art: Vanda Miss Joaquim (syn. Papilionanthe Miss Joaquim)

Did you know that Singapore is the only country in the world to have a hybrid as her national flower? Amongst 40 flowers, Vanda Miss Joaqium ‘Agnes’ (syn. Papilionanthe Miss Joaquim ‘Agnes’) was chosen for its qualities that are reflective of the Singapore spirit - its vibrant colours, hardiness and resilience. Join us at this botanical watercolour art workshop and learn more about Singapore's national flower!

This workshop is part of the Colours in Bloom Deluxe series.
