Lilian Wooster Greaves Pressed wildflowers

As wildflower season approaches, join Dr Kate as she discusses the ‘wildflower work’ of Lilian Wooster Greaves (1869-1956) who produced and exhibited pressed wildflowers from 1915.

Greaves was also a prolific poet, and had many poems published throughout Australia. The State Library has a very special collection of her pressed wildflower assemblages within her private archive collection. View Beauties of the Bush and Westralia''s Wonderful Wildflowers on the State Library catalogue.
