Wild Art on Wimbledon Common
In association with the Big Draw
Join artist Philippa Snell for a wild art workshop on Wimbledon common this October Half Term. Inspired by the folklore traditions of Samhuin and Halloween, we will use natural materials to explore the idea of communicating with another world and preparing for the coming of winter.
Learn how to do Hapa-zome leaf printing, mud sculptures, ground pictures and working with Hazel-rods to make large, three-dimensional ‘drawings’ up in the trees.
All the activities will be outside and the course will end with an atmospheric, outdoor art installation for parents to come and experience.
Children will need to wrap up warm and bring waterproofs and boots. We will have shelters, plenty of activities to to keep us warm and dry and hot drinks even if the weather is terrible!
2 day course for 7-12 year olds
Monday 27 and Tuesday 28 October.
£120 for 2 days
Venue: Wimbledon Common
Meeting point at the edge of the car-park by Wimbledon Windmill.
