Is there a Gruffalo in the Arboretum?

We have walked around the Arboretum Park to collect leaves, look at the interesting trees and take tree bark rubbings.
We also looked out for the creatures in the Gruffalo story, but we only saw lots and lots of squirrels.

Here are a few photos of our leaf printing for a background display.

World Mental Health Day

World Mental Health Day took place at Derby University on 10 October.

It was a very busy event with a variety of activities and information. 
We ran a batik painting workshop and we were delighted at the number of people who came along to participate and chat to us about our work.

Here is one of the excellent batik paintings created on the day.

Green Men in the Redhills

Green Men Making

We spent 3 days working with the children at Redhill Primary School, Ockbrook, Derbyshire.
They were creating a Woodland Forest in their school and needed some Green Creatures to peep out from the foliage.

We created a large Green Man figure with the junior classes and worked with Year 5 to create little creatures.
Here are some of the photos from the project, we all had a great time!
