Book your workshop place
We are committed to working with our artists and communities in continuing to provide opportunities for creativity during these challenging times. Together, we have been working throughout lockdown in reconfiguring our courses to ensure the safety of all concerned without compromising on quality. Find out more about our new safety measures.
During this workshop you will make a micro sculpture park in jam jars using materials selected by Juneau Projects. You will add small plants and mosses to make a landscape and use laser cut parts, glue and paints to make a micro sculpture to go in it.
The plants will be selected to grow easily from cuttings so that the jar can be kept and grown at home, or the plants can be put into a garden.
The activity will allow for conversations, research and collaboration for developing ideas for their project with people from Milton Keynes.
This workshop will introduce the idea of exchange between the park and home that is central to the Great Linford Ecology project – the premise of making things for the park as well as taking part in activities at the park and taking home the results. The activity will also allow the conversations mentioned above and will be useful research for developing our ideas for the project. Juneau Project would photograph each of the pieces made as a record and to include in the research.
Great Linford Ecology Project
From September, Juneau Projects will be working with local groups and organisations in Milton Keynes in creating temporary public art works and resources for and about Great Linford Manor Park. Contributors will be invited to bring elements of their lives and identities to be shared.
Supported with funding from Arts Council England
