We are CLOSED

We will look at how you can use easy to grow or buy vegetables, plants and flowers (and often kitchen scraps). Creating sustainable materials and artworks can enhance your mood and well-being, connect you with nature and creativity and generate gorgeous colours and patterns that can be surprising and delightful.

During the day there will be an opportunity to join Feral Practice for Phytocentric, a participatory performance thinking humans towards the plants, using spoken word, touch and gesture. It draws together scientific, poetic and spiritual understandings of plants, and nurtures imaginative vegetal conversations. Vibrant material meetings and exchanges occur at every level of our bodies and worlds but often go un-regarded, or unknown. If we sensitize ourselves (as vegetal philosopher Michael Marder advises) to the fuzzy edges of our subjectivity in order to meet beings very different to ourselves, might it be in the wilds of the imagination that we can re-align with nonhuman nature?
