Free Art Workshop for Children and Families, NN Contemporary Art


On Saturday 2nd November, 11am - 1pm, artist Emma Davies will be running a FREE workshop called ‘Friendly Houses’ suitable for children and families, children aged 8 and over at NN Contemporary Art.

What does it mean to live environmentally friendly lives? And how could we be living in the future? NN Contemporary Art's current exhibition is 'Promise and Ruin' by Jonathan Alibone. Using Jonathan's paintings as a starting point, we'll be designing and making fantasy homes that embrace sustainable living with only using cardboard, found, scrap and minimal new materials.

Anything goes as long as the homes are kind to the earth. Think yurts, houseboats, geodomes, roof gardens, communal living, city dwellings, water recycling, compost toilets and home grown food.

Please bring cardboard boxes, found and scrap materials. Constructing materials will be provided.

Places need to be booked in advance.
