As part of the Stand for Nature Wales project, Radnorshire and Montgomeryshire Wildlife Trusts will be delivering a series of creative workshops with a nature twist this summer!

With summer holidays just around the corner, parents across Wales have already started looking for creative ways to keep their children entertained once school comes to an end in a few weeks’ time. From days out to staycations, there is so much on offer as restrictions continue to relax. For those parents looking for something a little different, the Wildlife Trusts in Wales has the perfect option!

As part of the Stand for Nature Wales project, Radnorshire and Montgomeryshire Wildlife Trusts have been working hard behind the scenes to pull together a series of creative workshops with a nature twist.

Starting from Friday 23rd July the Wildlife Trusts will be delivering free creative workshops to children from 9 to 24 years old. These workshops offer a unique opportunity for children to embrace their creative side whilst also learning about nature and our climate. Kicking off in Llandrindod Wells, attendees can expect a film-making master class, some improvisation and nature-inspired painting.

We’re really looking forward to seeing what the young people create with the fantastic artists and practitioners. We hope that through the workshops, people will explore new ways of understanding and communicating issues of climate change and nature, as well as exploring their creative side!
