Hedge Portraits

Saturday 28 July, 10am-4pm
Visual Arts Studio

£50 (£40 concessions)
Suitable for adults

Using Claire Morris-Wright’s Hedge Project in the Wallner Gallery as a starting point, the artist and participants will explore the grounds in Highfields Park, gathering clippings and sourcematerial. Everyone will produce a Hedge Portrait that tells a personal story using ‘found’ natural materials, embossed onto paper. Entangled within each hedge portrait, personal signs, symbols and text will be collaged to reflect aspects of our relationship with the natural environment. Feel free to bring your own personal collage extras.
