About the event

A creative workshop for children aged 6 to 12 years old to explore the vibrant hues of nature.

In this workshop, children will embark on a journey through our enchanting garden surroundings. Guided by our knowledgeable facilitator, they will learn about the color wheel and the magic of primary and complementary colors, and set out to forage for leaves and petals representing the various colors of the wheel.

Back in the workshop space, the children will gather their treasures to create their very own color wheel masterpiece. Using a pre-designed flower template, they will arrange their collected petals and leaves representing a different color from the spectrum. Through this hands-on activity, they'll not only reinforce their understanding of colors but also develop their fine motor skills and creativity.

Once the color wheel is complete, it's time for the young artists to unleash their imagination! Armed with their own piece of cardstock and inspired by the vibrant hues of summer, they will create their own unique designs using two complementary colors.

Come join us at OmVed Gardens for a day filled with creativity, exploration, and the boundless beauty of nature!

* Please note that all children must be accompanied by an adult.

About the host:

Corrie Wingate is an artist and arts facilitator based in North London. After traveling across the African continent as a documentary photographer and because of her interest in community arts projects, she founded an Art Centre and artist residency ‘Kids create Kenya’ at a children’s home on Lamu island. Now in its 10th year the art centre is a place where children and young adults can express themselves freely through art.

Corrie has been part of the garden and kitchen team at Omved since 2020 and currently facilitates a nature-based art program for young children and adults.

About OmVed Gardens:

Since 2017, we have been carefully restoring a previously tarmacked land in Highgate Village, north London, to provide a space to explore food, creativity and ecology for health and climate resilience.

We are a community interest company featuring a permaculture garden, a creative zero-waste kitchen and a growing educational, events and exhibition space. Our aims are to realise our deep entwinement with each other and the more-than-human, through thinking around food, gardening and ecological awareness, to improve diversity at all levels (seed, food, species, participation) and to use creativity and nature-led knowledge to help tackle the climate emergency.
