For Wakefield’s Rhubarb Festival 2022, The Art House will be opening its doors and inviting you to join us for a range of FREE family-friendly activities that will connect you with nature.

Come along and help us tend our Urban Orchard. Planted in the summer of 2021 as part of our Eco Open Day, we have lots of edible delights starting to grow, including delicious rhubarb! We’ll be weeding, pruning, talking about our planting scheme, and even designing labels to help identify everything come harvest time.

Plus, pick up one of our nature loom kits, complete with twigs, string, and instructions on how to create your very own nature loom. Start it on the day and then take it home to finish your weaving.

And whilst you are here, don’t forget to stop in at our Coffee House to sample the delights of our local homemade rhubarb cakes!

The Rhubarb Festival takes place in Wakefield City Centre from 25-27 Feb 2022 – find out more at

Nature looms will be available all weekend.
