Daisy Chains at The Portico
This is a free event at The Portico Library - Wednesday, October 9, 2019 2:00 PM 3:00 PM
Daisies are the most common weed in England. Does finding out that they are not native to the UK change your opinion of them? Using the surprising migrant history of one of the UK's most common and well-loved flowers, artists and practitioners Jessica El Mal and Juliette Davis-Dufayard will lead a discursive workshop exploring the value of where things come from and what it means to feel rooted in a place. Bending copper wire to answer questions and express ideas, as a group you will leave behind a daisy chain of your own, as a marker of how the history of the common daisy has affected our thoughts today.
This is part of the Second Nature Exhibition at The Portico Library.
