Make your own Play-Doh Garden Centre Monster with artist Louise Hewitt

Louise Hewitt is an artist and storyteller whose work focuses on educating children about nature, the environment and gardening. She creates ceramic models of her central characters, the ‘Garden Centre Monsters’, to use as visual aids for her stories.

Join Louise at The Portico Library from 1pm on Saturdays 23rd and 30th November to have a go at making your own Play-Doh creature and hear her stories inspired by her work at Hulme Community Garden Centre and Venture Arts. This event is free for everyone to attend but there will be a limited number of slots available at 1pm and 2pm each Saturday so please register by email at or by phone on 0161 236 6785 to ensure your place.

Louise Hewitt’s original artworks are currently on display in The Portico Library’s autumn 2019 exhibition Second Nature: What is nature anyway?
