Of Feathers, Earth and Leaves: Creating Community with Nature
For Mothering Communities, the artist researched the pedagogy of the British Forest School and developed two workshops for children and their companions as an artisticcreative exchange process with nature. The focus is on getting to know materials from nature and experimenting with them.
The forest is explored, found objects are collected and magic wands, jewellery, small sculptures or even witches, fairies, robots and animals are created.
