Butterfly Workshop

Hillfort Creativity Group member Dzintra, from OSMakes, has sent info about an upcoming butterfly workshop she’s holding at Oswestry Library, Sat. 18th May 10-1pm. Contact Oswestry Library (01743 250351) for more information.

The 2018 Old Oswestry Bioblitz – which counted a whole range of species on the hillfort – recorded both Large White and Wall butterflies, both of which are on the Butterfly Conservation Red List of most at-risk British butterflies. You can read the press release for the Bioblitz here.

This Inside Out blog will be hosting posts and information for the “Hillfort Creativity Group” for the next few months. This group is a newly-formed hub for visual artists, creative writers, poets, musicians – indeed, anyone whose creative endeavours have been sparked by Old Oswestry Hillfort’s history, archaeology, wildlife, natural beauty or spirit of place. The group is a way for those of us inspired in some way by the hillfort to share our endeavours, find new collaborative partners and come together for events and exhibitions. Some of us are public artists, keen to pursue outreach projects that bring the community into our art – some of us will be pursuing more individual, introspective creative practices. The group will be using this blog and the Inside Out Facebook page to share that work.

Those of you who are new to the Inside Out blog – click the “Subscribe” option on the side menu to receive all posts and information about upcoming meetings, events and exhibitions. We will also be cross-posting that information on the Inside Out Facebook page, so you can check there as well.

Our next meeting will be in May – and we’ll be posting the date, time and venue of that meeting soon. Whatever kind of creative soul you happen to be – writer, sculptor, photographer, dancer, musician, gamer, crafter, knitter, painter, illustrator or maker – you’re welcome to join us!
