Green Hairs By The Clorofilas

Gardening is a fun, easy to learn and very useful for children, bringing them closer to nature and art.

This workshop aims to be fun and give children a different way to introduce them into the world of gardening through creativity, making faces and planting green hairs .

THE CLOROFILAS is a creative laboratory which explores the aesthetic potential of vegetation as a primary source for experimentation. Initiated by Jeanette Ramirez who experiments with new forms of coexistence between plants, domestic  and public space.

Mural Painting with Alex Lucas
Alex will be running a mural painting workshop along the rainbow brick wall in Montpelier Park to give it a little facelift! Alex hopes to bring a smile to peoples’ faces and soften the hard image of graffiti by introducing humour and beauty into the world of street art. She has a fond fascination of creating strange characters on walls but also has a little studio space in Bristol where she screen prints and likes to spend time drawing. Alex likes to run half marathons in silly costumes.

 Maze and Sculpture with Tanja Helmond
Tanja will be running a fun and silly sculpture making workshop… make your own parading vegetables and just get stuck in!
You could even make your own vegetable instrument. You can find out more about that at the amazing Carrot Museum. Click their image above to visit their website.
