Join land artist Mick Petts and writer David Lane as well as historians, cyclists, geologists, dog walkers, archaeologists, poets, gardeners and many others to discover the hidden layers of Ashton Meadows. Try your hand at land art and writing inspired by this unique green gateway site – which has some of the best views in the city!

This is the first step in an exciting project to create a giant piece of green story-telling for the city and an iconic new earth form that emerges from it – so please come along and be at the heart of making it happen.

All the discoveries and work created will be on show in the Create Gallery.

Sticky Stories storytelling and craft group for toddlers and pre-school children

Wednesday mornings 10:30 – 11:30 in the Create Café

Come and join our journey as we explore old and new picture books. Make the books come alive, as we make our own unique characters. Turn an odd sock into a dazzling fish, a toilet roll into an adorable cat, make a star from drinking straws, or turn a piece of paper into a sailing boat. We use everyday objects and turn them into fun and easy crafts for all to make. Each week your child will have the opportunity to make up to 4 different crafts from painting, to junk modelling, and from colouring to sticking.

Sessions cost just £3.00 for the first child and £2.00 for additional children. Siblings under one year are free.

No need to pre-book, just come along on the day. For more information please visit www.stickystories.co.uk, or for the latest pictures of crafts made please visit and ‘Like’ us on Facebook under ‘Stickystories’. We are also on twitter: ‘@Stickystories1’.
