Join artist Lily Hawkes to explore the wildlife and ecologies of the lake in these family workshops, and make beautiful artworks to take home.

You will discover the birds and ducks of the lake in Southwark Park as well as how the ecosystem functions, and will create individual and collective artworks that explore the visual and material qualities of the lake.
