In this session, we will use the concertina pocket books created in our previous session with paper artist Phiona Richards for a guided sketching and collecting walk along the Riverbank.

By the end of the walk, your book will be filled with small treasures or art inspired by them found along the way. This will give you a new perspective on the beauty of the natural world around us in Spalding. The books and treasures will be exhibited online to celebrate what makes Spalding’s River Welland special, and you will be able to take your created book home.

This session and artwork are part of our Spalding Reconnected: Riverwalk activities.

Spalding Reconnected: Historic Town & Riverside is an exciting new community Arts and Heritage project celebrating and promoting the unique history of Spalding’s town and riverside. It is made possible thanks to National Lottery Heritage Fund, South Holland District Council, Heritage Lincolnshire, Transported Arts, East Mercia Rivers Trust and Lincolnshire County Council, and will seek to create and promote several townscape and riverside improvements, together with future funding opportunities all based on Spalding’s heritage.
Transported is working with these partners to make sure creativity and heritage play a central part in the regeneration of the town, making it a nicer more interesting and fun place to be.

This activity is free to participate in, and there is no need to book. Drop by any time during the activity and the Transported team will be able to advise on the best time for your walk to begin. Please allow an hour/an hour and 15 minutes to take part. The activity can be adapted for all ages, but we do require under 18s to be supervised by a parent or guardian.

Date: 4th July

Time: 10 am – 3 pm

Location: Riverside Double Street Green – What3Words: /// (opposite Pygott & Crone)
