Public workshops. Tønsberg and Færder Library 1st and 7th June.

The <GIPT> artists have designed seed packets that contain seeds from the type of plants that were grown in the St Olav’s Monastery garden in the 11th century. The packets contain information on how to save the seeds from the plants and instructions for social actions that explore notions of sharing and generosity.

The seed packets were made in public workshops at the Tønsberg and Færder Library on 1st and 7th June, at the artists talk on 6th June and at a workshop for art students on 17th August.

The seed packets were given away free and were left around Tønsberg at places of rest or exchange such as shopping centres, libraries, park benches, bus stops and railway stations.
