Paint Your Own Colourful Curlew

Event date:
14th August 2022
The Sill: National Landscape Discovery Centre

The session will start with a curlew call and a curlew spell, to prepare you for the magic of creating your very own colourful curlew.

Local artist Amy Brooks (Mrs Barts) will be alongside you all the way with her rainbow palate of bright colours using watercolours.

We need parents and carers to stay in The Sill building for the hour-long session, but you can choose to stay in our workshop room, grab lunch in The Sill Café, take the roof top walk or explore The Lost Spells: Listening to a Landscape of Voices exhibition.

Suitable for children 6 years+.

Free Parking at The Sill included with your ticket.
