The Planting Festival. 3-5 May. Woodford
Discover. Imagine. Create. Celebrate. Plant. Grow.
Thank you to Woodfordia for another amazing Planting Festival.
Wild Art enjoyed a sensory delight of celebrating music, dance, the environment, art and folklore. A smorgasbord of creative workshops to create, weave, sculpt, paint, knot, cook. Inspiring and informative talks, environmental, scientific, political and meditative. A children’s festival full of earth inspired experiences. Loved seeing children build a pallet Village. Children authentically building their village spaces with power tools, hammer and nail.
Local and world music, Session bar jam sessions. Visually stunning opening and closing ceremony on the pond. Night scapes of lighting and fire pits. Crafty beer tasting sessions and world food.
Something for everyone.
Wild Art created and provided a cosy sensory place space for children. A Tepee from up cycled crochet blankets, woven treasures and palm leaf containers attached to the sides, wooden discs and blocks to build with, hand painted cushion, handmade clay tea set. Such a hit with young families as they relaxed on the veranda, enjoyed a meal and beverage while their children explored and formed imaginary play scenarios.
Later into the evening the cosy space became a quiet chill area for young adults to share stories.
A fabulous place to Discover. Imagine. Create. Celebrate. Plant. Grow.
