Discovering the Egg


Reliving the journey of Stephen Turner’s Exbury Egg - we'll look at all the places it's been so far, seeing all the different sights it's seen and people it's met. You'll get to decide where you would take it next and create collages out of recycled paper and textiles!


15 July

Jordan Baines

A Combination of Two Jordan’s past two workshops have explored how you can draw using nature’s offerings. We’ve made our own inks and our own drawing instruments!


Now we’re combining the two together and drawing from pressed flower arrangements.
