Video introducing the Loving Earth Project:
For a shorter introductory video suitable for social media, see here.
Our partners at Woodbrooke have recorded this short guided meditation to help us reflect on the core Loving Earth Questions: focusing on something, someone, or somewhere we love, and how our activities might threaten or help us to care for its future .
Our friends at Riverhouse Barn Arts Centre have made a series of creative tutorials demonstrated by workshop leader and artist, Lottie Percival, to inspire makers working on their Loving Earth Project panels. These educational workshops guide panel makers through many exciting and sustainable textile techniques they can use to create their designs.
Potato printing for your Loving Earth Panel
Lottie Percival has also made this little video to get you started if you’d like to use printing in your panel-making. You can use potatoes or other materials you have at home. Acrylic paint is ideal (as is oil based printing ink or paint), but poster paint or gouache are OK too as long as your panel is kept very dry. Iron your cloth and stick it down flat before you start , and keep a bit spare to try the paint or ink out on.
This is really fun, and a good activity for children of all ages. You can of course combine it with stitch etc.
