Would you like to attend Harvard University with Outback Exploratorium?


To conclude our Botanicals of the Outback series we are thrilled to offer an exclusive virtual tour of one Harvard University’s most famous treasures, the internationally acclaimed Ware Collection of Blaschka Glass Models of Plants, better known as the “Glass Flowers.” In this hour long tour we will delve into the history, artistry, and significance of the Blaschka collections. 


This unique collection was made by Leopold (1822-1895) and Rudolf Blaschka (1857-1939), a father and son team of Czech glass artists. Over fifty years, from 1886 through 1936, the Blaschkas produced 4,300 glass models that represent 780 plant species.

If this event is cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances, we will refund participants in full. If you are unable to attend, we require 24 hours’ notice to issue or reallocate your ticket(s) into another workshop.
