This Earth Deities workshop from Hebden Bridge Arts and Rachel Shore is an opportunity to be immersed in sensory art making by creating your own nature spirit figure inspired by the natural beauty of Nutclough Woods.
In response to references of ancient earth worshipping traditions across world cultures, participants will spend time exploring a range of locally sourced organic materials to bring to life their own nature deity.
The created gods, goddesses and mythical beings will be installed in Nutclough Woods over the Open Space 70 arts trail weekend before naturally decomposing in their return back to the earth.
Please note we will be in Nutclough Woods which involves sections of uneven steps. We hope to use the community room at Nutclough Tavern as part of this workshop (venue booking tbc).
Please bring along lunch to the session if you wish.
Part of ‘Open Space 70’ environmental arts festival by Hebden Bridge Arts.
