12:00 am - 2:30 pm
An ONLINE exhibition of drawings and prints exploring wood and woodland by Tansy Lee Moir and Margaret Pitt.
‘Out of the Wood’ brings together two artists whose contrasting work shares themes of time, history natural processes. Wood also unites them, as a material to create images from and as a living subject to make images of.
Margaret Pitt uses plywood to create her bold woodcut plates, producing richly textured, layered prints. Her colourful imagery is suffused with symbols and archaeological influences, both mysterious and timeless.
Tansy Lee Moir hunts through woodlands for the ancient and unusual trees which are the source of her work. Her dramatic charcoal works conjure light falling on time-ravaged tree forms, whilst her dynamic drawings and oils convey a sense of movement and vibrancy.
7th – 21st August 2020.
6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Learn how to make Beeswax Food Wraps and go home with a new skill, 3 wraps and feeling empowered to cut down on your plastic use.
What are beeswax food wraps?
They’re a natural eco-friendly alternative to cling film and tin foil for wrapping food, cheese, bread, covering bowls and jars. Perfect for school lunch boxes and food on the go. They keep food fresh, are naturally anti-bacterial, can be reused, refreshed and composted at end of life.
Your upcycled cotton wraps will be made using organic ingredients: beeswax, jojoba oil and tree resin.
What will you do at the workshop?
We have done all the hard work so you don’t have to. Rose will guide you step-by-step through choosing fabric, the ingredients, applying the wax mixture, setting, finishing and maintenance. By the end of the workshop you’ll be making wraps like a pro. It’s learning in a social, fun and relaxing way with like-minded people.
Why take a beeswax wrap workshop?
If you’re looking to reduce your carbon footprint, reduce waste to landfill, reduce chemical-laden plastic food packaging or looking for ways to become more zero waste then this is for you.
Rose has trained over 1000 people to make their own wraps with her tried and tested recipe and method. If you would like to arrange your own private group, she is happy to host groups of 6 – 12 people at her studio or will travel to you. Larger groups can be accommodated.
Lets banish cling film from the kitchen and benefit our health and the planet.
This is a fun and educational creative experience.
