Love Our Planet Workshops – Children – Workshop 1 (Let’s Go Green Festival)
We have commissioned artist Rebecca Atherton to explore climate change in a unique and innovative way through a series of creative workshops for both adults and children. Rebecca specialises in creating and constructing theatrical headdresses that represent mythological goddesses and animals.
In her workshops, Rebecca will delve into the effects of climate change and look at its impact on the animal kingdom. Workshop participants, over a series of three workshops, will design and create visually striking headdresses, depicting and celebrating great mythological animal god spirits. Each headdress will be accompanied with an environmental pledge and will provoke discussion amongst wearers and viewers. Headdresses will then be displayed throughout Halton to inspire and generate discussion around this highly relevant and immediate environmental topic.
These workshops are perfect for anyone interested in climate change, art, animals and our natural world. It is a series of three workshops, with participants attending all three in order to deeply explore this topic and produce valuable creative pieces.
Recommended age: 9+
Dates: Saturday 10 July, Saturday 24 July, Saturday 31 July
£3 for a place on all three workshops. Please book online via the Eventbrite website – see the ‘More Information’ link on this page, or at any Halton library.
