Bio Building - Instagram Live workshop

When: Saturday 4 July, 2pm

Finish Time : 3pm

Where : Instagram Live @meadowarts

Join artist Jamila Walker as she guides you through a fun, imaginative, family art workshop that focuses on the combination of nature and man-made construction.

Inspired by Alex Hartley’s In Ruins artworks and his new film for The Artist's Studio series, together you will work with the idea of bringing nature into our homes, through houseplants, attempting to control them and adapting them to our spaces.

On the Meadow Arts Instagram page, Jamila will demonstrate how to create your own small plant-sculptures using accessible art materials, card, paper, glue, and/or recycled materials following organic themes. Decorate your mini-plant replicas by adorning them with patterns that reflect buildings; brick wall patterns, cement air holes etc. to build pieces that marry nature with man-made construction.

The live art session will be sociable and accessible, you are invited to ask questions, share ideas and be experimental.
