Children in Watford aged 10 and under are invited to take a walk on the wild side in Whippendell Woods this half term.
Artist Alex Baranovski will create a number of timber and steel sculptures in the woods on Thursday 18 February. Taking inspiration from creatures that live in the woods, local children are invited to join between 1 and 4pm to paint some fabric banners, which will be hung from Alex’s beautiful creations. The completed sculptures will be left in the woods for a few weeks to delight and surprise visitors.
The gazebo will be just behind Grove Mill Lane car park (WD17 3TX); parents will need to stay with their children, and visitors are advised to wear old clothes – as the paint may not wash out. Hot chocolate made on the campfire will be served with biscuits, to keep chills at bay.
To inspire children for the wild art session; the day before (Wednesday 17 February) there is a Mini Beast Hunt in Cassiobury Park. Children over 6 years old are invited to come along between 11am and 1pm, wearing warm clothes and sensible footwear. Meet at the park’s Gade Avenue car park
