Gather wild seeds and wayward stories in a collective publication…
As a celebration of our Wild Seed storytelling workshops, we will collect the experiences we shared – thinking about seeds in relation to belonging, movement, magic and intuition – to create collaborative collages.
Expect a warm and relaxed space to share seed stories and tales of growing – your own and from others that you are carrying with you. This will be a relaxed workshop where you can read, write, draw, scan and collage archival and collected materials.
All materials and resources will be provided on the day but if you have some of your own writing or any material you would like to share, like seeds, soil, songs, poems or photographs, please bring them along to add into the mix. You don’t need to have attended any previous Wild Seed workshops, all welcome.
There will be an option to eat together near the close of the workshop. Please specify any dietary requirements when booking.
About the project
Wild Seed is a project organised by Glasgow Seed Library, part of Scotland’s Year of Stories, inspired by Octavia Butler’s epic speculative novel of the same name. Writers, folklorists and artists lead a series of storytelling workshops inspired by the practices, cultures and histories of seed saving, plant stewardship and earth care. The project will culminate with the creation of a publication of texts, poems, songs and images.
This event has been supported by the Year of Stories 2022 Community Stories Fund. This fund is being delivered in partnership between VisitScotland and Museums Galleries Scotland with support from National Lottery Heritage Fund, thanks to National Lottery players.
The venue is fully wheelchair accessible with gender neutral toilets. There is funding to support additional access requirements, such as travel expenses, BSL interpretation or live captioning – please specify when booking or email firstname.lastname@example.org to make a request.
