Family Workshop: Garden City
Friday, 10 August 2018
11am – 3pm
Session 1: 11am–12.30pm
Session 2: 1.30–3pm
Join us for an exciting sculptural expedition into a world of imaginary plants and future flora led by artist Ruth Claxton. Let your imagination run wild as we create a green estate full of magical plants, fantastic flowers and freaky foliage that might grow in Chelmsley Wood in the future.
No need to book, just drop in to B37 Projects’ Green Estate Space at Unit 16–18 in Chelmsley Wood Shopping Centre. Suitable for children aged 5–11 and their parents or carers.
This workshop is one of a series being run by Eastside Projects in Chelmsley Wood this summer as part of the Green Estate, in partnership with B37 Project. Artists Sarah Taylor Silverwood and Sophie Bullock will lead Family Workshops on 24 and 31 August, and we are also running Many Worlds a Summer School for young people aged 16–24 who are interested in careers in the Creative Industries.
This activity supports 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 aims to develop high quality arts opportunities and experiences for people and places along the Midlands Trains route.
