The Making of an Artwork

Thursday 30 May 2013 to Friday 31 May 2013, 10:00 to 14:00

This half term meet volunteers and Arnolfini staff at Castle Park for a bird’s eye view of the Floating Garden. Families can visit our activity tent to take part in fun drop-in activities.

Hear about the concept of the project, how you can get involved and find out about the work behind the planting process. From raising plants to designing the Seeds of Change project as the Botanic Garden team carry out their annual planting of the garden.

Families are invited to join in too as we tell you more about the amazing garden and the plants that you can see growing.  Come and visit our activity tent to take part in the following fun drop in activities:

Newspaper pots and seed planting- learn how to make your very own plant pot, then choose one of the ballast seeds to plant and take home with you.

Design you own plant label- we all need to know what's growing in our gardens.  Create a special label to remember more about the seed that you have planted.

Floating Ballast Seed Garden Design- become a garden designer and use our colouring sheet to show which plants you can see growing on the 'Floating Ballast Seed Garden' or create your own design using your favourite plants.

Location: Castle Park. See map.

No advance booking required.
