Looking at a Cornish Hedge – Patterns, Colours and Textures
Family Art Activity with Artist Sue Kinley
Meeting place: By the bench outside Sancreed Church
Date and Time: Wednesday 14th April, 11am or 2pm, each session approximately 2 hours.
Art materials provided! You might like to bring a drink/snack with you.
Cornish hedges are a wonderful source of patterns, colours, shapes and textures, changing with the seasons, full of flowers, lichens, mosses and wildlife.
We will look at the Cornish hedges near the churchyard, and use sketchbooks and drawing materials to make a record of a hedge in Spring as many wild flowers and plants start to emerge. You can also make drawings to keep and bring as inspiration to one of my workshops at Sancreed Village Hall in August, where we will be making Cornish Hedge artworks in a range of materials. This could also be the start of your Cornish Hedge picture diary, as you draw the changes through the different seasons.
This is suitable for all ages – there are lots of ways to make marks, patterns, colours and shapes, and we can try and identify some flowers along the way!
Hopefully the weather will be fine, and we can combine the activity with a short local walk to the mysterious Sancreed Well and/or Sancreed Beacon with far reaching views. The area around the church is level and fairly dry underfoot, but the walk to the well can be muddy, with a bit of uphill walking.
Please note that due to social distancing each walk is limited to five participants, and attendees must register in advance - to register please fill in the form below, including how many you would like to register, and in the Special Requirements box please let us know what walk you would like to register for. Places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
