Loving Earth Project will be offering two events on 10th April, as part of the Journey to COP 26 invitation to help us all prepare for the critical UN climate talks in Glasgow in November 2021. All are welcome to our morning’s workshop Celebrating where we love, or a more leisurely day Exploring Sacred Spaces – details are on our Events page
More information about COP 26 and other events on this date are available here.
Celebrate a place you love , as part of a Quaker-led initiative inviting everyone to celebrate a place that is precious to them. It could be where you live now, in a distant land, a place of natural beauty, a building, or another place that is 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 for COP26 and will tour widely thereafter.
You can join our journey to COP26 events on 10 April or get started today using resources on our website. You might like to set aside some time on 11 March as part of the Global Day of Action when people from faith groups around the world will be taking a variety of actions for climate justice.

The Lockdown Legacy project is a part of the Loving Earth Project, focusing on how the Covid Lockdown has affected our relationship with the environment. This Zoom event will help you develop or get started on making a textile panel as part of thisproject in any style. If you have already started on your panel (on your own or at another workshop), there will be opportunities to discuss how to develop the design, overcome specific textile challenges, think about how to finish it, and also your ideas for your action on the environment.
You’ll be invited to do a little preparation from home in advance of the event if you wish and will be welcome to join our online chats for panel-makers as your panel progresses, if you like.
