About this event

Have fun with art skills and exciting techniques to create something fabulous to take home inspired by the Horniman's collections or seasonal celebrations.

Bobbing Butterflies: Make and decorate a beautiful butterfly, with a wooden clothes peg body. Attach a string and make it "bob" up and down as it flies.

Each week at Art Markers, we have a different theme, including Easter Bunny Glove Puppets to celebrate Easter, Giant Flower Masks linked to the Chelsea Fringe Festival, Bobbing Butterflies for Butterfly Awareness Day and Creepy Crawly Puppets for Insect Week.
