We were fortunate with the weather for our last public event – the drop-in day at treefold:east was clear and relatively warm (as you can see from the image above), so there was plenty of time for sharing stories and ideas as the treefold took shape. Let’s hope we’re just as lucky with what’s coming up:
Photography and Poetry Masterclass at Tarn Hows, Sep 5th: As part of Friends of the Lake District’s Great Landscapes Week we’ll be spending a day at Tarn Hows. We’ll be combing a walk with regular stops to consider the landscape – and the way it makes us feel – and exploring new points of view. If you’d like to come, please click the link to book (it’s free, by the way!). You’ll need to bring a packed lunch and your tools of choice – camera, notebook, pen, or, simply, curiosity. No experience in photography or poetry is necessary.
Kirby Lecture, Oct 13th Another event with Friends of the Lake District: we’re honoured to have been asked to present the annual Kirby Lecture this year. We’ll be reflecting on our work over the past few years across Cumbria, among trees, in meadows, and on fell tops, in farm yards, at auctions and eyes-down in the grass with ecologists, and the way our creative drives keep us looking ever more closely. Ambleside Parish Centre, 7pm.
The Long View Exhibition extension – until Oct 10th If you haven’t had a chance to get to The Long View exhibition in Grizedale, or you’d like to visit again, there’s some good news – the exhibition run has been extended until October 10th, so there is still time! There has been a small change: we have taken the living trees away so that they can make their autumnal shift in the great outdoors, and in their place we’ve left some of the materials we used in the colour installations.
treefold:north drop-in day. The best laid plans, and all that … we had originally scheduled a drop-in day during the build of the final treefold in September, but have had to change this. Please keep an eye on The Long Viewwebsite and our Facebook page for dates of the drop-in session during the build of the third treefold.
