Come and build a listening playground…
Free workshops led by artist Anna Horton Cremin for all ages at Wild Rumpus (Scholar Green, Cheshire East)
We will start the workshop by exploring the woodlands together through mindfulness and listening activities, investigating the smallest sounds to the tallest treetops. We will then work together to collaboratively build a listening playground using a variety of materials and objects provided in the location.
The workshop will brings ideas of mindfulness, adventure play, and ecology to listen to the ecosystem at Wild Rumpus.
We encourage participants of all ages to come and take part, remembering how play and playgrounds can be important in stimulating bigger conversations. So whether you are a young family or a curious adult, we’d love to play! The activities will be for all ages.
Please bring suitable footwear, as the woodland space can get muddy.
