aKIN Exhibition Workshop

“This is a time to take a lesson from mosses” Robin Wall Kimmerer, renound writer and botanist

Mosses have survived 350 million years of catastrophe. They are ecologically important, absorbing huge quantities of water, helping to soak up rainfall and create humidity, offering a home for creatures, like woodlice and nematodes.

There are around 1,000 bryophyte species of mosses and liverworts in the UK. Many require microscopes to distinguish between closely-related species, how can we get to know and learn from them?

For this workshop during Participate’s exhibition a-kin, Jill Impey will take you on a brief artist’s guide to learning from mosses. No experience necessary, there will be some fun drawing and mark making and a gathering of words to make poetry snippets you will need pencil / pen and A4 paper. 

Suitable for Adults & Children Age 8 upwards ( no unaccompanied children)

Session lasts 1 hour, Sunday 13th of February at 1 pm

Face to face: at the Unitarian Church Shrewsbury ( max 6 including carers – please note there are stairs up to the workshop room ) booking via : shrewsburyunitarians@gmail.com
