Our Free Launch Event | Keele Hub, Fri 5th & Sat 6th August (from 10.00am)
We’re holding our very own showcase event at Keele campus to mark the formal launch of our new social enterprise. Come along on either day and ‘escape’ with us and learn how to get ‘inspired by nature’. (Free Tickets available below).
Come and meet all thescapeartists, who’ll be there helping you get creative. We’ll have loads of interactive creative workshops and green exercise demonstrations, helping you to:
green your exercise & exercise your creativity
Highlights | What’s going on during the event
Pottery Throwing – Throw a pot on a potter’s wheel. Get some practice ready for BBC2’s ‘The Great Pottery Throw Down’ and keep your very own creation*.
Mosaic Tile Making – Help thescapeartists create a unique collaborative ‘Sustainability’ themed piece of artwork which we hope to later turn into a finished mosaic. Join us making and decorating the clay tiles using ‘nature imprinting’ techniques – using leaves from Keele’s Landscape and Arboretum! Help us to create a permanent reminder of our launch event.
