EVER balanced a stone or wrapped up a tree?

Then defy gravity and head to RSPB Old Moor in Barnsley for some unusual crafts inspired by the outdoors.

Families can have a go at creating their own temporary modern art installation at the nature reserve near Barnsley.

Artists James Brunt and Ella Robinson will be helping visitors adorn and decorate the landscape with colourful materials and sculptures of stone at two special ‘Wild Wednesday’ events.

Pond dipping sessions, which run every Wednesday during the school holidays, start on July 27, with a gravity-defying stone-balancing session led by James.

The week after, Ella will lead visitors in brightly-coloured textile ‘wrapping’ of natural objects on August 3.

Visitor officer Julia Makin said: “We hope to show people how much fun it is to explore the outdoors, in lots of different ways.

The art will provide thebackdrop for the Voices for Nature folk concert on Sunday, August 7.
