Join local artist Faith Bebbington and create wonderful flowers using recycled materials.

About the event

In the UK, we use 5 million tonnes of plastic each year but only a quarter of this is recycled. Faith Bebbington is a renowned, local, visual artist who reuses plastic that would otherwise end up in landfill, to create beautiful creations including animals and flowers. At these workshops, you'll be able to join Faith to use a range of recyclable materials and learn how to repurpose and reuse single use plastics to make beautiful artwork. Come and create giant wildflowers such as forget me nots, cornflowers, poppies and more! The flowers will be displayed at Liverpool Cathedral over the Jubilee bank holiday weekend to bring attention to plastic waste and climate change, and the role we all play in protecting the Earth.

These workshops are generously supported by LCVS Community Impact Fund and the Hemby Trust.

 

Each family-friendly session is free and lasts 2 and a half hours. You may wish to stay even longer and make more flowers! All sessions must be pre-booked and each person attending is required to have a ticket.

Secure your free space here.

Sessions start at 10:00am and 1.00pm. Each session starts with an introduction where you will be shown the techniques used to create your giant wildflowers. Please note that all children must be accompanied by an adult.

Workshops are not limited to families, why not come with a group of friends and spent some time in our beautiful building being creative?

Any colourful plastic carrier bags you could bring would be gratefully received. You could use these bags to bring a foodbank donation to our Micah charity too.

You could also choose to spend the day with us and book places for our family friendly art and craft activities too. 

Liverpool Cathedral is free to enter and you will also be able to explore our amazing building if you wish to extend your time with us.
