Exploring the hidden life of horse chestnut trees

28th Sep 2023

In this free workshop at Court Hey Park, we will explore our deep connection to trees and how they communicate with each other, guided by artist Frances Disley.

Event Details
  • Workshop,
  • Free

Working with a family of horse chestnut trees in Court Hey Park, we will draw, write and see trees in different ways using different methods and perspectives.

Spending time and taking notice of green spaces and trees is shown to increase our feelings of wellbeing. Join us to observe the patterns of the trees and their bark, use words to describe our encounters with them, and take time to consider how they grow and communicate. Frances will provide lemon balm tea to share, as well as ink made from horse chestnut husks to write, draw and create artwork with.

Supported by Arts Council England and Incredible Edible Knowsley.
