The Heritage Lottery Fund and Arts Council England are running the Great Place Scheme that enables cultural and community groups to work together to celebrate local heritage.
Suntrap Forest Centre, an environmental education venue based in Epping Forest, received funding to deliver a programme of activities in Waltham Forest called Suntrap On Tour.
View their plans for the future and artworks of the Suntrap building and natural surrounds produced by Emma Smith before the centre was closed for refurbishment.
Emma said ‘Through documenting the beautiful wildlife and buildings that they've called home for so long I hope I can capture the magical spirit and the stories it has to tell. I feel envious of children growing up in the borough and experiencing a school trip here.’
Saturday 19 October, 11am-3pm
Join artist Emma Smith for a drop in art workshop and Q&A, followed by a chance to meet some of the Suntrap animals.Q&A starts at 11am, meet the animals from 1pm.
