About the event

A workshop aimed at children, dedicated to making handmade brushes from natural materials before mark making using nature based inks.

Children will start by taking a walk around OmVed Gardens before collecting flowers and leaves to make our brushes.

There will be a selection of handles such as bamboo and willow on the nature table but the children will choose their brush heads to make a variety of brushes to paint from.

Then, working outdoors (weather permitting), we will assemble our nature paintbrushes before looking at different ways to make paint using natural inks thinking about different brushes for a variety of mark making.

Children will be able to choose a scene or motif to paint from the gardens or the Alchemy exhibition, or use their own imagination, and they will take home their handmade nature brushes as well as their final paintings.

Suitable for children aged between 6 and 12 years old.

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