Join the Arts & Science Festival Sculpture Commission winners Juneau Projects for this one-off family workshop inspired by their sculpture proposal for the Green Heart, 'Mosswerk'.

Make and paint mini plant sculptures using laser cut wooden pieces and add them to a growing moss and mushroom landscape within the workshop space - then take your creations home with you!

Presented by Juneau Projects as part of Arts & Science Festival, a celebration of research, culture and collaboration across University of Birmingham campus and beyond. In place of its usual week-long slot, the festival’s seventh edition is a 12-month programme designed to showcase the University’s striking new parkland, the Green Heart.
