JoinArtist Jane Bevan, for a relaxed and sociable day of walking, collecting and making art in South Derbyshire. We will begin with a stroll around the site, enjoying the woodlands and collecting seasonal fragments of nature to use in our artworks.

We will then experiment with a wide range of hand techniques such as tying, cutting, knotting, twining, plaiting and hand stitching to assemble small sculptural artworks and 2D collage. We will use waxed linen thread; wire; natural string; grass; reeds and plant stems for a truly organic rustic experience.

Prepare to be surprised and pleased by the range and quality of playful artwork that can be created from found natural materials.

Price: £30 including refreshments
