Waterways: A Workshop with Anna Davis - Sunday 4th September
Join us on Sunday, 4th September from 7-9pm for a two hour workshop and walk with artist Anna Davis, looking at the medicinal plants that grow along the Tyne river. After the walk we will make small hand made, sewn books to draw, press and write about the plants that we have collected. We will also make teas from some of the plants and explore their properties and health giving benefits.
Tickets for the workshop include all the craft supplies you'll need to make your book!
Where will the workshop take place?
We'll be meeting at Night Owl Books, 1 Bridge Street, East Linton, EH40 3AG, at 7pm. Please note that we'll be walking on uneven ground along the river, and would recommend wearing comfortable shoes and trousers.
