Drawing, Wire Sculpture & Porcelain: Exploring the beauty of endangered plants

Tuesday 27th August & Wednesday 28th August 11.00-16.00

This family friendly art activity will use exciting materials to explore the diversity of wild plants that can be found in fields and margins. A Back from the Brink project, these activities will inspire you to discover, value and act on protecting some of our most vulnerable species.

Back from the Brink is one of the most ambitious conservation projects ever undertaken.
Its aim – to save 20 species from extinction and benefit over 200 more through 19 projects that span England; from the tip of Cornwall to the top of Northumberland. It’s the first time ever that so many conservation organisations have come together with one focus in mind – to bring back from the brink of extinction some of England’s most threatened species of animal, plant and fungi. …and the Ryedale Folk Museum is hosting this two day art event as part of this ambitious scheme.

Working with professional artists Sian Hughes and Sarah Jane Richards you will get creative with drawings, wire sculptures along with delicate porcelain flowers to create beautiful artwork as part of a growing exhibition.  Suitable for all ages and abilities.

Create your own species of flower, explore the wonderful wild plants in our fields and margins, make unique art and help protect some of our most vulnerable species.

A really exciting opportunity to be part of this ambitious nationwide project. For more information visit   www.naturebftb.co.uk
