Environmental Arts Projects/Days
We enjoy being involved in arts projects interpreting environmental awareness, habitat, ecology and sustainability. Get in touch to discuss any project ideas.
Examples of projects we've worked on:
Foulshaw Moss - Aren't Bogs Brilliant in partnership with RSPB, Cumbria Wildlife Trust and Morecambe Bay Local Nature Partnership.
The children from Dean Barwick Primary in Witherslack worked Woodmatters and staff from the RSPB to study the plants and animals that make Foulshaw Moss such a special environment.
Inspired by what they discovered they created a wonderful ’Aren’t Bogs Brilliant!’ Art Trail through the mediums of sculpture, willow work, using natural materials, printmaking and painting. The arts trail was open to the public along the boardwalks at Foulshaw Moss for 3 months.
Experience the River Project in partnership with South Cumbria Rivers Trust
River ecology, river dipping finding loads of brilliant creatures in the rivers local to each of the schools we worked with. We then collated everything we've discovered into a giant multimedia hanging artwork using river water, making our own natural dyes, using stones, sticks and leaves and printmaking from our sketches of the creatures we discovered.
