Raw Earth Art, a hands-on workshop for creative improvisation in sculpture, using materials found in nature to create installations variously known as land art or site specific works within the parks and public green spaces of Le Creusot, France. In collaboration with artists from the disciplines of screendance and performance art, the creation of sculptural works in the landscape will lead to short film screened during the final day of the festival.

The workshop is open to professional visual and performing artists from all media, as well as university art students, who wish to engage with natural spaces as a source of both creative materials and the site of art making itself. The workshop is led by Diana Heyne (New York Botanical Garden, American National Botanical Garden, etc.).

Space is limited and open on a first come/first serve basis. Workshop fee is 150 euros and takes place 19-23 May 2015. Workshop language: English
