Environmental Justice Questions: Workshop
10.30am – 12.30pm and 2.30pm – 3.30pm, Booking required

Environmental Justice Questions, organised and edited by Harun Morrison, is a compilation of questions for discussion and debate. Harun has invited a range of people including activists, writers, artworkers, theorists, architects, chefs, natural historians and horticulturalists to propose a question relating to environmental justice that can stimulate conversation. The workshop will involve a series of small-group discussions around chosen questions followed by a larger group discussion. Suitable for ages 16+.

Benjamina Albanese: Let’s Make Rubbish Art
11am – 4pm, Drop-in

Part show-and-tell, part artistic play area, Benjamina invites you to make ‘rubbish art’ from a range of materials she has accumulated over years of zero-waste living. Having lived without a general waste bin since 2018, the St Helens-based artist will use the session to challenge what we think of as ‘waste’, our role as waste producers, the waste we produce, and how that ‘waste’ might be reused.

Avian Amble with Paul Harfleet
12.30pm, Booking required

A special sharing / celebration event at Court Hey Park, where attendees of Paul Harfleet’s Birds Can Fly workshops are invited to share their bird-inspired creations, and have their portraits taken to add to an exhibition of ‘gently referenced’ ornithological looks. There’s a prize for best dressed, and a free lunch too. Meet us at the park café in your best feathers if you’d like to join the walk, or come along to watch! Birds Can Fly uses art, illustration and design to educate and inspire bird lovers and promote creativity, kindness and acceptance, encouraging an inclusive community of ornithologists and naturalists. Sign up to be part of the Birds Can Fly workshops here.


Enjoy a delicious  homemade lunch on Heart of Glass! From 1pm – 3pm grab some free food and  take a tour round an exhibition of work by artist John Maguire and volunteers from Incredible Edible, exploring how we can help to look after our precious ‘green lungs’ (parks, gardens and fields). Meanwhile,writer and social advocate Bernadette McBride will be sharing poems from creative writing workshops with local group Cut Glass Writers.

Mythology, Ecology, Embroidery with Becca Rauer
2.30pm – 4.30pm, Booking required

Folklore, mythology and storytelling have been used for centuries to influence behaviour and instil morals in children and adults. Many of these powerful stories include environmental conservation messages that continue to influence policy today. Becca’s embroidery workshop will explore how folklore can help shape attitudes towards green spaces, inviting you to share stories and knowledge to inspire original embroidered artworks. Becca invites sewers and crafters of all experience and levels to take part in this session and will be on hand to offer tips and share skills with those less confident.
