As part of the Discovering Dragonflies Project (see the separate area on our website) we are running two willow weaving dragonfly sculpture days.  The first was full and very successful (see picture above) and places are still available for our second and last willow weaving dragonfly sculpture day.

The aim is for attendees to be representatives of local community groups/organisations.  This is because participants will learn to make a large willow sculpture of their own, which they can then place in their respective community area.  Also they will receive skills in order to be able to show others in their community groups how to make simple willow dragonflies – thus cascading and maximising the benefit of the day.

As the session is free (supported by the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund), I want to ensure that any participants have a community space to place the dragonfly sculpture (with a small sign explaining why it is there).

Also they will be shown how to make a simple willow dragonfly – which they then can show others in their community groups – thus cascading and maximising the benefit of the project.

If you think you fit the criteria, and would like to come along, please contact Mark on 01460 65214 or education@ferneanimalsanctuary.org to book a place.
