The following observations and documentation were intended to capture the range of play led learning activities for children, organised and co-ordinated at Collective Gallery, Edinburgh, by Tonya McMullen over the spring period in 2022. The activities I observed took place over a number of weeks and saw the children working alongside several specialists, including:

Working with a musician to explore music, sound and the local environment of Observatory Hill

Working with a beekeeper to explore the eco-system of the garden and to find out all about the necessary role of insects and bees and what we can do with honey and wax

A scent artist to make and produce location specific scents and perfumes
