At Manchester Museum we have worked with artist Lucy Burscough to take inspiration from our Botany collection to create these colouring sheets.
You don’t have to be an expert artist to colour! If you’re looking for an uplifting way to unwind after a stressful day, colouring will do the trick. The Museums herbarium sheets fade over time so we invite you let your imagination go and colour in the sheets.

Research suggests that mindful colouring can provide numerous benefits for all ages. Along with the chance to relax and refocus, it can: Help lift your mood, decrease anxiety and stress, improve focus and in some case improve sleep. It allows us to switch off and focus on the moment.
