The Wild Escape | What’s growing in the garden?

This children's workshop is part of Art Fund's The Wild Escape project uniting museums with schools and families in a celebration of UK wildlife and creativity.

There’s a worm at the bottom of the garden… what else can we find outside?

Join us to create two-dimensional creatures out of paper inspired by the wildlife we find in our gardens. These will be displayed as part of a collaborative artwork for Earth Day on 22 April, and the display will be up until the end of May.

In this session we will be using paper, collage, paint and glue, explore and create flowers and plants for our collaborative artwork. What plants and flowers might grow at the bottom of the garden? Daisies, dandelions, tulips, daffodils? Taking inspiration from our garden and from our art collection find out more about plants in flower at this time of year.

The Wild Escape is made possible with support from Arts Council England’s National Lottery Project Grants, with additional support from Bloomberg Philanthropies, Kusuma Trust, Foyle Foundation and a group of generous individuals and trusts.
