About this Event

If you like plants, getting your hands dirty and learning about our environment, then this event is for you! In this creative and practical workshop you will learn how to make seed balls using native plant seeds and ecological material. Seed balls are used to ‘seed bomb’ urban areas to regenerate plant growth. Once the seed balls dry, they will be scattered in a walk of the UTS precinct the following week, Monday 30th September at 1pm (register here). Meet on the Alumni Green at 2pm and we will walk up to the UTS Central terrace as a group. Due to restricted public access, make sure to arrive on time. Workshop will take place on the outdoor terrace in the new Library space at UTS Central Level 8 (not yet accessible).

Background information:

This workshop forms part of the UTS Library 2019 Creative in Residence project by Alexandra Crosby and Ilaria Vanni, from the research studio Mapping Edges.

The Planty Atlas of UTS is a socially engaged creative project consisting of a live plant installation alongside a multidisciplinary bookshelf on selected plants, a seed balls workshop and three mapping walks around the UTS precinct. In preparation for the Library’s move to UTS Central in November, our residents are growing plants onsite, to then green our new spaces in Building 2. The mapping walks aim to create new, plant inspired pathways around the precinct and produce mapping counterpoints that yield different and relational understandings of everyday places around the library buildings. The Planty Atlas of UTS asks: how does our understanding of cultural, environmental and social histories and futures of place change if we let ourselves be guided by plants?
