Session 1: 11am – 12.30pn
Session 2: 1.30pm-3pm
Artist Sophie Bullock helped us think about how we can contribute to greener spaces, by making air-dry clay plant pots and flower ‘seed bombs’. We developed our own designs and decorations to illustrate our favourite things about nature, making one pot for each participant and one to give to the community.
This workshop was one of a series being run by Eastside Projects in Chelmsley Wood in summer 2018 as part of the Green Estate, in partnership with B37 Project. Artists Ruth Claxton, Sarah Taylor Silverwood and Sophie Bullock led Family Workshops on 24 and 31 August, and we also ran Many Worlds a Summer School for young people aged 16–24 who are interested in careers in the Creative Industries.
This activity supported the first iteration of Link and Shift, a new offsite programme curated by Eastside Projects in partnership with West Midlands Trains. Built around a series of Artists’ residencies and Artist-Led Walks the programme develops high quality arts opportunities and experiences for people and places along the Midlands Trains route.
