The first few Loving Earth Project panels is currently on public display as part of the Seeking Routes art exhibition at Swarthmoor Hall, near Ulverston in England’s Lake District. The exhibition continues until early September.
The exhibition shows a variety of works by Quaker artists on the broad theme of Quaker experience and action on the environment.
At a workshop 20th July, work started on some further panels, the first of which have been completed and have joined the display. Others will be added as they are sent in.
The first workshop for the Loving Earth Project was with a small group of Quakers aged from 4 to their late 60s. In a 40-minute session, we thought about something we love that is in danger from environmental break-down, and how we might influence the threat to it through our own actions.
Here are some of the fabulous designs we sketched on paper. We, also had some interesting discussions about how our own actions connected with what is happening to the environment, and how it affects these creatures and places.
Some of the designs are being made into textile panels.
