Onion Workshops

This series of workshops focused on connecting cultures, sharing skills and creating a safe space. TV Babies worked with RAPAR and the Gaskell Garden Project to facilitate regular workshops based around all the mystical glory of the onion, instilling the ethics of permaculture into the concept of the workshops we decided to make the aim of this project about creating objects that could be used in a feast- eating together as something all cultures share. We made clay bowls and spoons using onion casts, naturally printed beeswax food wraps and a patchwork table cloth and macrame pot holders. We held these with a group of refugees and asylum at Plant Noma, Manchester (an artist led workshop and exhibition space). The workshops ran in from April-June 2018.
