Live Workshop for Families Online: Nature Journal

Summer is the best season to observe nature up close. Join our live workshop with Jen O’Brien and follow her tips on creating your very own concertina album. Use this concertina to record your personal observations, including drawings, collage arrangements and notes. Make sure to have your favourite flower or an image of your favourite bird at hand, to get you started. What insects can you spot in your back yard or local park? Can you name the flowers and berries? What might you find on the beach? What’s hiding in the woods? You can document it all in your nature album.

Warning: all sharp tools are to be used by adults only.
