Transported is working in partnership with a number of local community groups to bring arts activities and performances to community events in 2015

Join artist Julie Willoughby (Zoomorphia) to create flower and bug badges made from card and paper with stick on embellishments. Use of pearlescent and glittery card and paper to give the impression of insect wings, shiny beetles etc. The bugs will be perched on flowers and leaves, we hope that the garden experts will be able to suggest suitable pests for certain plants, and we can use basic templates, altering them to suit particular bugs and flowers. Will you make a friendly bug pollinating your flower, or a mealy monster eating your precious plant?
