Grow Urban Festival: Seeding new futures art workshop Pt 1

Join us for the first of two art workshops exploring practices of creating and protesting for gardens and green public spaces in London’s urban fabric.

  • Booking essential
  • Free event

Tend Collective has developed a free two-part workshop to create a collective protest banner to celebrate and ensure the protection and creation of community gardens in London.

We will be building on Morden Hall’s industrial past and history of opening up its grounds for children and becoming a publicly accessible park for the people of London. Working with our hands we will be creating a collective protest banner to celebrate and ensure the protection and creation of gardens in London.

Part 1: Seeding New Futures

This first session will involve a hands-on seed paper-making workshop using old paper and wildflower seeds to make a protest banner. This will then be used in the following session as the canvas for the next workshop.

Part 2: Stitching Gardens Together (see other event list to book)

The second part of the workshop to create and adorn the protest banner. Get involved in embroidery, drawing and writing for a collective ecological future.

Come along to either or both sessions. Families welcome. Free.
