Delve into The Lost Words book and share stories of your encounters with nature. Come together to create a gigantic woolly web and discover how plants, insects, birds and animals are all connected. Bring The Lost Words to life with team games and enjoy an afternoon filled with creative crafts on a micro-scale! Investigate the wonders of dandelions and the art of willow weaving, before tucking in to toast and bramble jam. Dress for an outdoor adventure - bring a packed lunch!
This workshop is part of the Artsreach Creative Summer Programme, themed on Robert Macfarlane's book 'The Lost Words', and is suitable for ages 5+
Artsreach is a registered charity that brings high quality performances of live theatre, music, dance and family shows to the heart of rural communities across Dorset.
Artsreach is dedicated to providing people in rural areas with the opportunity to choose and promote professional arts events in their local venue.
Our performance programme runs through a network of around 50 volunteer promoting groups and together we organise over 140 high quality professional events every year, usually in village halls, right across rural Dorset.
Not only do our events provide the opportunity to enjoy high quality arts on your doorstep, they are also a great social occasion!
The income generated from audience members purchasing tickets plays a vital role in supporting both Artsreach as a scheme, and the community venues in which events take place, as event box offices are split between both parties.
We are an Artsmark Supporter and Arts Award Partner - do get in touch to find out how we can work together!
