Join us at West Stow Country Park for our dragonfly ‘walk & workshop’.
Take a guided walk along the river, then get creative making a dragonfly art installation.

Take a guided walk along the River Lark with Adrian, the County Dragonfly Recorder. Find out what these amazing insects like to eat, where they live and much, much more.

Afterwards take part in making a dragonfly art installation with Jac from Rojo Art. We’ll be working outdoors, making mini mosaics and some beautiful Posca pen drawings inspired by glimpses of shimmering wings in flight.

Your artwork will be exhibited in West Stow’s beautiful ‘Feel Good Forest’ area alongside the river.

If you’re a dragonfly superfan why not turn up in your favourite dragonfly colours, but make sure they’re not your best clothes as it might get a little messy!
