Have you ever wondered what it means to belong to a living home, full of colours, patterns and connections? Did you know we are connected to flowers, seashells and dinosaurs everyday of our lives? This workshop, joining science with art, hopes to inspire children to be curious, inspiring an open mind and heart for all that we can become. Grow your Ecoliteracy with Tiff Bollhorn, Environmental Author and Educator, by discovering Nature's amazing ways at sustaining life through a creative storytelling journey of WONDER EARTH (written by Tiff and children’s author Zanni Louise). Using a BIG book, FUN props, and role-play, discover some of the key patterns and processes that we are part of everyday, and deepen your appreciation of Nature's beauty and wisdom.
This workshop is part of our National Science week program Dark Science: New moon. Purchase your ticket here, places are limited. Call the gallery on 02 6627 4600, or email email@example.com to book or discuss access requirements.
