GemArts welcome you to join Lily’s creative art workshop sessions at Springbank Pavillion in Leazes Park. Learn how to use foraged natural dyes to create magic colours which will be used to make prints and designs on cotton and bamboo cloths. Lily will also be exploring how to make and use natural inks with things from your garden. Sessions will also involve weaving and felting, loom making and botanical drawing and print making. No previous experience necessary and all abilities welcome! Recommended age: 18+

Thanks to generous funding from the Newcastle Hospital Charity, the workshop is FREE, but advanced booking is required via Eventbrite.  BOOK a free place at one of the sessions by following the link below.

Since it launched in 2022, our pioneering arts and health project from Newcastle Hospitals Charity has helped hundreds of people connect with nature through a series of creative art workshops.  We are pleased to be continuing to work with local arts organisations Chilli Art Studios, Curious Arts and Gem Arts where you can continue to spend time in nature and get creative. Find out more about the project HERE.
