The vast majority of authentic British fairy folklore is linked to our native wildflowers. In this workshop children learn these stories  and how to identify wildflowers by making a  wearable paper version of one. The aim is to inspire children and parents to grow some  wildflowers at home in order to encourage  bees, butterflies, other insects and maybe a fairy or two.

Modern research has shown the growing importance of gardens as a wildlife sanctuary away from intensive agricultural chemicals.

A beautiful  costumed Flower Fairy will lead them into the workshop where they can choose to make  one of three wildflowers  ( using crepe paper and a pipe cleaner ). They are given the materials to do this and a set of step by step photographic instructions to follow, plus a little card of their special flower with its folklore, natural history and where to plant them at home.
