Art & Forest School Workshops

  • Tue 10 – Tue 24 March 2020
  • 10 am – 2 pm

Join us for an exciting day celebrating art and the land at Hauser & Wirth Somerset, in collaboration with Wild Resources. Wild Resources works to inform chefs and communities of best practices for foraging, stalking, fishing and forestry, with a focus on sustainability and seasonality. The themes of our exhibitions ‘Don McCullin. The Stillness of Life’ and ‘Not Vital. SCARCH’ will provide the context for primary school children to explore their understanding of the landscape through practical outdoor activities and visual culture. ‘Don McCullin. The Stillness of Life’ is an exhibition of over 60 landscape photographs, demonstrating Sir Don McCullin CBE’s intimate relationship with the local landscape of Somerset and continued passion for global travel since the 60s. ‘SCARCH’ is a solo exhibition by Not Vital and organised with Olivier Renaud-Clément and Giorgia von Albertini. The multidisciplinary presentation highlight's the Swiss artist's deep-rooted interest in the relationship between architecture, landscape and human perception. Students and their teachers will take part in an interactive tour of the exhibitions, followed by a Forest School session where they will be introduced to the rural landscape through a range of activities, from bark rubbings to shelter building. The Art & Forest School Workshops are available Tuesday to Friday, from January to May 2020, subject to availability.  To book please contact the education team on 01749 814 060 or email:   Cost: £6 per child. Minimum 25 pupils per visit. These sessions will meet Forest School requirements. All materials and resources will be provided. The workshop will include time for a packed lunch. Please ensure children are dressed appropriately for outside activities whatever the weather. All children should be accompanied by teaching staff.
