Butterfly Making Day

Today Ospreys were visited by local artists Lorraine De Col and Susie Walker, to make butterfly sculptures for an art installation which will feature in Rodborough Hidden Gardens Project. We started by each making a caterpillar from recycled materials, tying strips of fabric around a foam body to form a multi coloured caterpillar. After break we were split into three groups, each with a different task: painting leaves and making flower stamen, making chrysalis cocoons, and decorating caterpillar eggs. After lunch everyone worked together to create butterflies, using translucent coloured layers stuck into a butterfly template. Ospreys had fantastic fun making all the sculptures, and also took time to draw some great caterpillar pictures. We are looking forward to seeing all our finished sculptures put together as an installation, which will be on display at Rodborough Church and then later at the Museum in the Park for the Festival of Nature.
