Using native tree names, explorers will immortalise their leaves in leaf-print bunting and capture their bark and seeds in plaster of Paris. Learn to write acrostic poems in twigs and paints, bringing the wild words back to life. Make brand new paints using natural materials such as stone and charcoal, ground down to powder. Design and make jewellery from a range of natural materials and copper, capturing some of nature’s curves and patterns. Dress for an outdoor adventure and bring a packed lunch!
This workshop is part of the Artsreach Creative Summer Programme for Children, themed on Robert Macfarlane's book 'The Lost Words', and is suitable for ages 5+
