Following the Roots: Forest Art Club

10th Feb 17th Mar 2023

Get creative in the forest! Join artist Frances Disley to explore a range of artistic processes, taking inspiration from Halewood Park.

Due to the nature of the workshop taking place outdoors, and the expected snow and cold weather this Friday, we have made the decision to postpone the final Forest Art Club session until Friday 17th March. There is no workshop on Friday 10th March.

These sessions for adults will include drawing, painting, photography and sculpture, with a focus on a different part of the woodland each week. Together we will also explore ways to make natural art materials from the trees and plants in the forest, allowing us to get to know them a little better.

If you live or work in Halewood, these workshops are especially for you. Frances is gathering stories about the local area as part of this project, which will inspire a semi-permanent artwork in Halewood Park.

Workshop details

Workshops will take place from 11.00am - 12.30pm every Friday from 10th February until 17th March, at Halewood Park Environment Centre, Okell Drive, Liverpool L26 7XB.

Please note there will no longer be a session on Friday 10th March.

Drop in, or book your place via Eventbrite.

These sessions are free, with no prior experience required. Whether you’re a keen creative or fancy trying something new, please come along! We will meet at Halewood Park Environment Centre and venture out into the forest to get creative. Hot drinks will be provided at the end of each session. Wrap up warm and dry as we never know what the weather will be like these workshops will be held outdoors.

Frances Disley

Frances Disley is working with Halewood residents to create a new artwork for Halewood Park. Through a series of workshops and events in the community, Frances will gather local knowledge and memories, which will inspire a trail of sculptures through the forest.
