Our local natural environment – what do you love about it?
An art workshop for all ages – 11.00 – 12.20
Delivered by Fiona Caley a local artist in partnership with East Riding of Yorkshire Council and East Riding Voluntary Action Services (ERVAS) Ltd
We welcome you to take part in a creative art activity expressing your thoughts, feelings and emotions about our local environment. Fun for all ages, this workshop will be led by Fiona Caley specialising in the natural world.
From an early age Fiona had a connection to the land, growing up on a coastal farm on the edge of Holderness. Her deep sense of connection to the landscape was developed through her years of working the land alongside her family. Moving on from there she travelled, lived and worked in various parts of the world before returning to her roots, established in the flat lands and big skies of East Yorkshire. Her work as artist and photographer is inspired by the beauty of these wide-open land and seascapes.
James Taylor, Sustainable Development Team, East Riding of Yorkshire Council
