Wastelands to Wonderlands: sow and grow!

01 Jun 2022
Time: 10.00am - 3.00pm

Aren’t seeds amazing? Tiny natural vessels that contain all the magical DNA of their mother plant – mind blowing!

Drop into Kresen Kernow and join artist Vicki Aimers to plant your very own sunflower seed. Learn how to make a simple concertina book – a special diary to record your seedling as it grows. Magical! These free workshops will run from 10am-12pm and 1pm-3pm and there’s no need to book.

Artist Vicki Aimers is in residence with us from Saturday 28 May to Wednesday 1 June. Her residency is inspired by Catherine Payton Phillips, a Quaker Minister who lived in Redruth in the late 1700s, after travelling extensively around the world. She had a love for doing good for others. Catherine wanted to make sure that local people were never hungry by having the idea of growing fruit trees on local wasteland.
