Family Saturday

Blossom Together Picnic: Brindleyplace Edition

Join artist educator Taiba Akhtar to take part in creative activities surrounded by the cherry blossom trees in Oozells Square, Brindleyplace, outside Ikon Gallery. Families are invited to create floral origami and monoprints inspired by the blossoms, their fleeting fragility and uniqueness. Open to all ages.

Bring a packed lunch with you and take part in the Blossom Together Picnic (12-2pm), organised by Ladywood Arts Forum and Brindleyplace and supported by National Trust: Thanks to players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

Family Saturday takes place on the first Saturday of every month, 11am-3pm – join us for a drop-in creative activity, led by a local artist.

Ikon’s Learning Programme is supported by Cass Art. Please consider making a donation for this free activity.
