Using the themes of rivers and life along the river banks and natural and found materials, IOU artist and writer Louise Oliver will lead family-friendly activities to include graphite rubbings (also known as frottage) from wood carvings, drawing, colouring, writing and collage.

IOU’s Two Rivers is a contemporary art installation that uses traditional wood carving, spoken word and sound, to explore environmental themes, the passage of time and the cycles of nature. It draws inspiration from the dramatic steep sided Calderdale landscape and the confluence of the two rivers that flow through the valley.

Louise says  “We conceived it as a place where snippets of life are seen taking place along the banks of the rivers.  Moments and memories are captured here in sounds, words and images” 

Suitable for all ages.  Free entry and materials provided
Activities run from 12-5pm no booking necessary
Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times
