Foraging for Folklore Tent

Foraging for Folklore – Tent

Story and craft workshops and walks for families. Local Young Art Kommunity (YAK) members Mae and Ria will be inviting families and young people to come and get involved in their foraging folklore workshops in the bell tent in the children’s area.

Working with local artists Wyrd Flora, you will be able to come and learn about the local flowers and fungi of Colchester and some of the folklore surrounding the natural world; try out some natural inks and art materials in our artopothocary; and create your own masks inspired by the stories we will tell on our foraging walks around the park throughout the day.

This activity is a Grow Wild project funded by the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.
