Ballast Seed Garden: Tea Party with Heather Morison

Saturday 24 September 2016, 14:30 to 16:00

Put on your party outfit and join Heather for a very special tea party on board the Ballast Seed Garden

Come and discover the edible plant life that grows on the Ballast Seed Garden, and turn it into delicious drinks and snacks for our tea party. Invent your own floral brew or herb infused mocktail and transform cupcakes into miniature gardens.

In 2015 artists Heather and Ivan Morison were commissioned to develop a playground for a special educational needs school in Bristol, working with the staff and pupils to find an alternative language of play and sensory stimuli through landscape and sculpture. Inspired by this project, families are invited to join artist Heather Morison as we encounter the wonders of plants in play, making and discovery.

Meet at Arnolfini Box Office

Find out more information about the Ballast Seed Garden trip.

Located on Bristol’s historic harbour, just below Castle Park, the The Ballast Seed Garden was created by Maria Thereza Alves in June 2012. Constructed from a disused grain barge, the garden is populated with a variety of non-native plants, creating a living history of the city’s trade and maritime past.
