The Pannett Art Gallery in Whitby will host the One Small Step exhibition

Each work suggests an action or activity we can do to help improve the environment, and includes photography, collage, painting, print, poetry and textiles.

The theme has inspired a wide range of people including professionals, emerging artists and absolute beginners to create works on this theme.

There is also a selection of poster designs by pupils from schools in the Whitby area.

Is it fish or is it plastic? by Carol Sinclair

There will be plenty of opportunities to create your own artwork, from recycled origami fishing vessels and folded recycled paper fish to designing your own environmental superhero.

Three free, family-friendly creative sessions are held in the gallery to create a large-scale campaign banner to (help) save the planet.

Thursday, September 1 from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Friday, September 2, 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Saturday September 3 from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

By using recycled textiles you can use a range of techniques to illustrate the actions we can all take to reduce CO2 emissions and improve the environment.

The completed banner will then be displayed in the gallery.

Then, on Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 September, as part of the Whitby Fish and Ships Festival, help our gallery artist create an installation on sustainable fishing.

Become an explorer of the Yorkshire coast with a range of activities produced by the Marine Conservation Department of the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust.

Everyone is welcome, but children must be accompanied by an adult.
