Some of the region’s top creative talents have teamed up with environmental experts for the Waveney and Blyth Arts Merry Month of May.
Talks, walks and workshops are taking place in the River Waveney Trust’s stunning riverside, woodlands and water meadows at Earsham, just outside Bungay.
Writer and environmental activist Mark Cocker will be leading a bug hunt and giving talk about how insects inspire prose.
Woodcut artist and printmaker Dianne Griffiths will be taking a walk through woodlands, talking trees and their woods, sketching and making bark rubbings.
Back at base she will help people create their own design, make their own woodcut and produce their own prints. T
