A creative landscape – call for creative proposals!

From June 2017 to December 2017 the Centre for Stewardship will run a series of creative drop-in sessions that allow the community and visitors to celebrate the landscape of the Lomond Hills and Falkland Estate. We are inviting crafts people and artists to contribute to these sessions.

Sessions will celebrate the hidden possibilities in the abundant materials of nature.

Suggested activities include but  not restricted to:

• Basket making with summer grasses, rush or moss

• Creating string and rope from nettles, rush or moss.

• Willow weaving for baskets, bird feeds or small sculptures

• Painting with earth pigments

• Natural dyeing with leaves and plants

• Pictures, jewellery, furniture or sculptures using twigs, branches and stones.

Where possible, participants will be encouraged to collect materials from the landscape (in a respectful and sustainable way).

Simple kits and instructions will be available for participants to take away.

Sessions will be free to the public and will be held either on a Saturday or Sunday in the Craft Hub at the Stables from 10.30am to 3.30pm. A total of 12 sessions are planned.

It is intended at the end of the series of sessions that we will host a small exhibition to record and celebrate what has been created.

If you are interested in leading one or more of these sessions then we would like to hear from you. Please send a proposal including your relevant experience to helen@centreforstewardship.org.uk. Please also advise on the best time of year to deliver your session(s) (eg summer, autumn, winter)

Creative leaders will be paid £200 per session (to include the day + any preparation + travel). There will be a separate budget for take-away kits, materials and other workshop expenses. Please outline these approximate costs in your proposal.

Proposals to be submitted by email by Monday 22nd May.

For an informal chat please call Helen Lawrenson on 01337 858838.

These sessions are funded by Awards for All.
