Butterfly Flutterby: Family Drop in Workshop with Artist Susie Walker

Artist Susie Walker will help you bring butterflies to life using vivid Brusho Inks and drawing with sticks you bring with you on the day or find in the park. Working outdoors you can celebrate the Big Butterfly Count by creating your own butterfly print, seeing how the colours flow into each other, then taking your stick to draw with black ink adding detail to your butterfly.
