Nature Talk and Draw

A talk from a local natural history expert, followed by a supported drawing session to connect to their collection – bringing the natural world and drawing practice together to facilitate nature connectedness and creativity in an accessible way.

The Nature Talk & Draw 2022 programme was generously funded by the Ashley Family Foundation. We hope to continue the project in the summer of 2023 – please follow us on social media and sign up for our newsletter to stay updated.
