Nest Making Workshop

Saturday 22 September, 10am - 4pm

Artist Lucy Grant will lead a drop-in family nest-making workshop in response to the current exhibition at CAST. The workshop is free, no booking required.

Come and weave, wrap or shape a nest from all kinds of natural and man-made materials and explore the relationship between form and function in the architecture of nest building. Cosy pocket or craggy fortress, large or small for predator or prey, what sort of nest will you create?
