Discover the true companionship of art and nature! Spend the afternoon at Laumeier and find inspiration in the earthworks and living sculptures at the park. Take a hike, respond to the environment and use raw materials from nature – leaves, pebbles, twigs, berries and rocks – to make your own works of art. Enjoy the process of creating in nature.
