Wild City Art Project

Wild City is a free, weekly, all weather art project based in the Eden Community Garden from March – October for local families. The 2 hour sessions are led by artists Karen Vost and Charlotte Hollinshead and photographer Emily Bowling who combine skills to deliver a broad range of arts activities including large scale sculpture, installation, stop motion filmmaking, photography, clay work, textile art, collage and creations with natural materials. The garden is treated like a blank canvas to create within, and is used as a backdrop for photography and sculptural sessions and as a source of materials and inspiration for all our activities. Each week the artists devise engaging activities accessible for all ages and the no pressure, child led approach to the sessions means the children can dip in and out of activities on their own terms often blurring the lines between play and creating.
