Join regular Heart of Glass collaborator artist Frances Disley to celebrate the trees of Halewood Triangle Park as she leads a workshop exploring gifting, ceremony and ritual. Together, we will make our own garlands and gifts to offer to the trees as a way of demonstrating our care and affection for them.
The so-called lungs of the earth, trees communicate with each other and even store memories. They have a profoundly positive effect on us humans too. By creating our own garlands and dressing the trees, we will explore the importance of acknowledging the importance of our cohabitation.
Whilst at Halewood Park Triangle, we invite you to explore Frances’ project Following the Roots: Stories of Halewood; a new trail of sculptural artworks made in collaboration with residents from Halewood, telling the human tales of Halewood intertwined with the wisdom of the trees.
This workshop has been designed for adults, but children are more than welcome to accompany. Booking will become available when exact event times are confirmed.
