Studio Petals: A Botanical art school in the foothills of the Himalayas
“Studio Petals and ….map the extraordinary promise of postcolonial Himalayan botanical art school of by and for the people. While the colonial roots may have been exploitive, the shoots have been transformative, hurling themselves skyward and into the future.
