Field Guide 2022
Explore Socrates’ unique environment with a series of experimental workshops that combine art making with natural materials, gardening, experiments in sustainability, that celebrate the senses.
Workshops weave together planting, drawing, sound recording, plant and tree identification, learning about medicinal properties of indigenous plants, pickling, bookmaking, and experiments in bioplastics. These workshops will also explore mindfulness techniques, seeking to grow our shared awareness of the natural cycles of the park, and our senses.
The series will result in a book: Field Guide, A Community-made Book of Knowledge, that will be both a collaborative artwork and a guide to the ecology of the park.
These workshops are free, hands on, open to all ages, families and individuals, and any skill level.
