"Whether it's making protest placards, flower printing, or making and printing plant pots to take home a plant in, there's something for everyone to try their hand at, at no cost.

"Plus, our bookable events offer an added experience for those looking to explore the local area on a guided walk or have a go at mono-printing greetings cards.

"We’ll also be visited by the Meadow Sprite puppets on Saturday, who’ll be exploring The Space and interacting with visitors from 12pm, 1.30pm and 3pm."
