Event description

Description

For Wild Life Drawing: Omnivores at Walthamsow Wetlands, we take a closer look at animal diets – especially those of animals that aren't fussy and feast on everything from plants, to insects, to fresh meat and carrion. We will be meeting and drawing mammals such as Pygmy Hedgehogs, Odie the Opossum, Meerkats and Mice as well as reptiles including a Tegu, Simon the Blue Tongued Skink, a Musk Turtle and some Hissing Cockroaches. We’ll discuss how they hunt and forage, and what benefits their varied diets bring to their lives. We will use this opportunity to discuss the rapidly depleting populations of our native hedgehogs here in the UK, how integral they are to our indigenous ecosystems and what we can do to help in our own back gardens or local parks.

All drawing materials are supplied, including paper and drawing boards, but please feel free to bring colours or any other specific media you might like to use. We'll start with plenty of practical tips to get everyone started, and creative guidance will be provided throughout the session. The aim of these drawing classes is to inspire a sense of appreciation and understanding for the animals and their conservation in the wider world.

About Wild Life Drawing

Wild Life Drawing is working with the finest animal handlers, sanctuaries and organisations to put on these events. All the animals that attend the sessions are well used to humans and comfortable in different environments, their welfare is our highest priority. These animals will be attending with two expert animal handlers that not only care for these animals but also re-home other unwanted exotic pets or rescue animals. These animals will be in specially designed runs, with plenty of enrichment activities and hidden treats to keep them occupied and happy for the time they are with us, whilst mirroring their natural behavior. All animals go through a 'Heath and Happiness' test before attending any external events, and are rewarded with their favourite foods throughout ensuring it is a positive experience.

Tickets priced at £30 per person including all materials.
