To our human eye, Spring blossom and flowers are full of colour and pattern, but how do they look to an insect? They are famous for their dot-like eyes – with some having as many as 30,000 lenses per eyeball! Seeing the world as insects may see it can reveal “landing strips” which are invisible to the human eye. These act to guide insects to the nectar they feed on.  Join artist Emily Tracy looking at images created by scientists, before making your own relief prints to show how insects see things differently!

Our holiday workshops are suitable for children aged 5 – 11, although younger children are welcome, if they are with an older sibling and a parent or carer works alongside them. We receive no funding for our children’s holiday activities, so please do make a donation to help cover our costs if you can.
