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 .

VIDEOS on Textile techniques and materials
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 with some simple printing on on textiles for panel-making. You can use potatoes or other materials to print with. Acrylic paint is ideal (as are oil -based inks 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 space cloth to experiment with ink or paint.
This is really fun for people of all ages. You can combine it with stitch too.
