  • Celebrating where we love: Journey to COP 26
    10:00 -12:00
    2021.04.10

    Celebrate a place you love today. It could be where you live now, in a distant land, a place of natural beauty, a building, or another place that is precious or sacred to you. Life is threatened everywhere by the growing climate crisis, and radical changes are needed to avoid the worst effects.

    We will help you prepare to make a textile panel expression your love for this place, and/or what you can do to help care for its future. Your panel can then be sent to join our travelling exhibition. We hope that panels celebrating beloved places all over the world will be shown in Glasgow at the time of the United Nations climate conference COP26 in November, and that the exhibition will tour widely thereafter.

    Anyone is welcome to join this event. If you or your group includes young people under 18 please let us know their names and ages when you book.

    Part of the time  will be spent in discussion in small groups. If you are willing to be part of a group with people whose first language is not English, please let us know any languages you are willing to work in. (The main language will be English.)

    We hope participants may to celebrate a variety of places around the world so that these can remind people seeing the exhibition of some of the different places whose future is at stake, and of the many different things people are doing to care for their future.

    Led by Jasmine Piercy and Linda Murgatroyd

  • Where does our strength come from? Get started on your panel
    19:30 -21:00
    2021.04.22

    What motivates you to take action on the climate? Where does your strength come from when the going gets tough?

    This workshop is an opportunity to reflect on why you have been making changes in your own life and are calling for more action to be take. We will use  a short guided meditation, quiet creative exploration, and some sharing with others.  It will also prepare you to make a textile panel to join the Loving Earth Project’s travelling exhibition, which we hope to exhibit in Glasgow for COP 26 and on tour before and after.  An opportunity to share your inspiration with others and encourage them in the part to a sustainable future.

    You’ll be invited to do a little optional preparation from home in advance and will be welcome to join our online chats for panel makers as your panel progresses, if you like.

    Free workshop on Earth Day 2021.  Please email us at lovingearthproject@gmail.com to book your place and receive the Zoom link.
