Led by artist Gemma Gottelier, families found inspiration in the beautiful dragonflies & butterflies found at Oare Gunpowder Works, their habitats and the flowers they love; exploring the historic site using all their senses to fully experience the surroundings, and spot wonderful winged creatures! Children chose and picked leaves and petals to form the markings of a dragonfly or butterfly, using other found materials for body parts and then printing with the foraged plants. The workshop concluded with everyone listening to a beautiful butterfly story….
