After a group picnic, take part in an afternoon workshop with poet Sarah Hymas and artist Kathy Hinde; writing short poems inspired by birds and building small devices to ‘imitate’ bird song and send coded messages. We hope to make recordings of your work to share.
No experience necessary, just an enthusiasm to play and create. If you have any questions about accessibility or the workshop, please contact Alice Booth email@example.com
Kathy Hinde’s work grows from a partnership between nature and technology expressed through audio-visual installations and performances that combine sound, sculpture, image and light. Drawing on inspiration from behaviours and phenomena found in the natural world, she creates work that is generative; that evolves; that can be different each time it is experienced.
Sarah Hymas writes, publishes and performs work about our ecology and personal and social histories: through poems, artist books and immersive walks. As a poet and facilitator, Sarah shares her practice so others can see, feel and understand the value and intrinsic role of creativity in our lives.
Laurence Rose is a conservationist who has worked for the RSPB for over 30 years. He is also a writer and composer and recently authored 'The Long Spring' published by Bloomsbury press.
Thanks to Jonathan Carter at Leighton Moss RSPB bird reserve for hosting the event.
