Transported is working in partnership with a number of local community groups to bring arts activities and performances to community events in 2015

Create a Daffodil display, a nicety of Narcissus, a floral fantasy – with artist Julie Willoughby (Zoomorphia).

The challenge is on…

Working with coloured card and paper we will make an enormous flower themed “prize winner’s shield” during the two days of the Lincolnshire Daffodil Society’s Spring Flower and Garden Show on Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 April.

The finished shield will be “unveiled” in all its glory on Sunday afternoon, so we will need your help, bring your friends and family to join in the fun. You can drop in for a few minutes, or stay all day!

Using paper engineering techniques – cutting, folding, creasing and crimping you will learn how to make daffodils and other flowers, along with card scrolls, banners and shield shapes, resulting in a beautiful tableau celebrating floral excellence.

This activity is suitable for all ages; children less than 8 years old must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
