Workshop details:

Join us on our Wild Escape, celebrating UK wildlife and creativity. Inspired by artist Sarah Gillespie’s beautiful print of the Peppered Moth.

Discover the amazing story of the colour changing Peppered Moth, track it around the museum and imagine its escape back to its natural habitat. Who do you think will help our hero but who might hinder its escape?

Then make a Peppered Moth stick puppet and simple puppet theatre and backdrop to use to perform your ideas of The Wild Escape to family and friends.

Be part of The Wild Escape, a nationwide celebration of UK nature inspired by the wildlife found in museum and galleries. The Wild Escape is made possible with support from Arts Council England’s National Lottery Project Grants, with additional support from Bloomberg Philanthropies, Kusuma Trust, Foyle Foundation and a group of generous individuals and trusts.
