Drawn to Nature: Flies

In a year where people have found increasing solace in, and drawn creative inspiration from the natural world, we invite you to participate in and enjoy ‘Drawn to Nature; Insects’. Join Museum Collection Manager, Zoe Simmons, to hear about the natural history and conservation status of some of the planet’s most varied and important creatures, the insects, before taking a chance to draw your own using the Museum’s specimens as inspiration with Q+A’s in this online, interactive science and art workshop. Make sure to have your art materials to hand!
