Family Space: Earth Tenders
SAT 27 JUL 2024, 11AM-1PM

Clay models being sculpted by a child and adult.

South London Gallery Family Space, 2023.

Join gardening and creative duo, Earth Tenders, for a hands-on session of clay hand building, inspired by the beauty and bounty of the natural world.

In this session, you’ll have the opportunity to create your own clay sculptures using red clay and various plant materials.

Infuse your creations with pollinator-supporting seeds, and choose to either contribute to a collective art piece, take your sculptures home or to a cherished natural space to dissolve and take root.

Suitable for children aged 5–12 years with their parents or carers.


Earth Tenders is a black-led community garden and archiving project based in South London. They offer low or no-cost workshops and training in food growing, medicine making, nature walks, craft and wellbeing practices for communities.



Ali Yellop is a community grower, organiser and educator who grew Earth Tenders from a desire to create affirming spaces to learn about earth practices and ancestral connections to the land
