About the event

Step into the secret world of moths and become a citizen scientist at this Marvellous Moths workshop.

Guided by conservation and horticulture expert Anita from Moomi Botanicals, we will discover moths from inside a moth trap placed in The Nettlebed Creamery grounds. We will identify them together using magnifying glasses and ID charts, as well as the irecord app to log their species and location, which will provide conservation scientists with important information about the biodiversity of the species in the local area.

Moth identification will be followed by a craft session with Lyndsay, where we will create the following;

- Wildflower seedbombs decorated with dried flower petals

- Vintage paper moths (colouring and sticking activity)

- Weave a flower meadow, using a natural stick/jute string base and dried flowers

Children will learn about the importance of moths, as pollinating insects and the flowers they visit. Contributing to the conservation of these secretive species.

It's a lovely session for any children that love getting creative! Children will need an adult with them for the duration of the course. 

£25 per child. 15 spaces per session.
