What to expect from the Afrocats x Wild Whitworth Event

This Easter The Whitworth is joining forces with Afrocats to create a giant art studio in the park.

Afrocats x Wild Whitworth has been inspired by the Althea McNish exhibition and families are invited to create their own nature-inspired designs using natural materials outside.

Althea McNish designs feature natural imagery drawn from the abundance of tropical flora and fauna from her native Trinidad.

The events will have different areas with open-ended messy play for the little ones and more guided learning about mixing and making natural paints for the big ones.

Using mud, berries, leaves, and other foraged ingredients, families will be able to make their own natural paints, dyes, and paintbrushes and create their own masterpieces.

Afrocats x Wild Whitworth activities are suitable for babies to teens and families.
