Archilace Workshop – Sat 11 Aug 2018

Dates: Saturday 11 August 2018–Sunday 12 August 2018, 11:00 am - 5:00 pm
Venue: York Art Gallery

Do you love plants and insects? Would you like to be involved in building part of a living installation that will be in the Artists Garden at York Art Gallery throughout the summer?

Loop.pH, the artists building a giant Pollinarium as part of new media arts festival York Mediale, will be back in the Artists Gardens, behind York Art Gallery this weekend – to build the second part of this remarkable installation.

Gardening enthusiasts, families with children and volunteers of all kinds, are invited to join in with planting a variety of interesting plant species in the plant pavillion and helping the artists construct a large space frame structure called the archilace! No experience is necessary.

Drop into the Artists Garden behind York Art Gallery anytime between 11am and 5pm to join in the fun, on what is set to be a glorious, green fingered day! Entry is absolutely free.
