RSPB SALTHOLME WILDLIFE RESERVE

AND DISCOVERY PARK

 

 

Blast Furnaces and Birds

 

During February half-term, the Community Engagement team ran a number of events in partnership with RSPB Saltholme Wildlife Reserve and Discovery Park. With the help of local textile artists “Fenella”, participants used the local environment (both natural and manmade) to paint onto pieces of fabric. We also ran sessions for four Sure Start groups from Hartlepool, Redcar, Middlesbrough and Stockton. Children came with their parents or carers to create some artwork. After the sessions, the artists worked hard to create four beautiful banners incorporating all the art work from the groups. These banners will be presented to each Sure Start group to hang in their centres. The project was supported through MLA’s Strategic Commissioning Programme, funded through the DSCF & DCMS.
