The Chimera Plantarium Weekend with Chiara Dellerba & Guests – Part 1

Street Botany with Wild.NG and Chiara Dellerba

In the morning, join artist Chiara Dellerba and locally based botanists Wild.NG for a walk around the local area, to learn about plants and trees growing in the neighbourhood.

Corby Balm with Rebecca Beinart and Chiara Dellerba

In the afternoon, discover the healing properties of common local plants – including ‘weeds’ that we might pass by every day – to make your own balm to soothe aches, pains and injuries, with artists Rebecca Beinart and Chiara Dellerba. We’ll be working with plants that link to Corby’s industrial and pre-industrial history.

Join for all or part of the day, with further activities across the entire weekend.

Begins from the Corby Town Centre Steelman statue, outside The Corby Cube.

Part of Chiara Dellerba’s Chimera Plantarium project taking place across Corby, this workshop is one of a new series of artist led activities which utilise the best of the online and offline world, connecting people with one another and the natural world.
