We are pleased to present the first outcome of Chiara Dellerba‘s The Chimera Plantarium project. A beautifully produced publication made in collaboration with Year 6 pupils at Exeter – A Learning Community Academy, Corby. The publication takes the form of a pressed plant herbarium, printed in environmentally friendly Risograph, featuring unique teal and fluorescent pink colours made with Dizzy Ink especially for this project, plus a screenprinted wooden case.
Inside are 11 cards of plants and their properties found in and around the school grounds, a booklet with an explanation of the project and plant communities, plus Letters to humans (from plants) – a collection of writings produced by the children imagining a world ruled by weeds. An invitation to create a space for sharing, listening and learning from the more than human worlds.
In addition to copies for the school and project partners, we are also making the limited edition publication available to the public, with funds raised contributing to future educational activity.
