To mark Earth Day we are hosting a mass creation day for families.
You will help create our giant land art installation featuring natural sculptures inspired by the wildlife and their habitats found in our grounds and museum. During the day there will be lots of different creative activities to get involved in, as well as wildlife talks and pond-dipping. At 2pm our sculptures will be launched across our pond and mounted on the island to become a long lasting installation (and a new home for the ducks and wildlife that live on our pond).
The event will be led by local artist and sculptor Rebecca Child, biodiversity expert Pete the Pond, and our Arts and Education Manager, Rebecca Ainscough.
Be part of The Wild Escape, a nationwide celebration of UK nature inspired by the wildlife found in museum and galleries. 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.
