advocating for new, stronger environment laws.  

 

If you like writing and/or crafting come sit round a big old wooden table

There will be a lot of hands-on activity and practical advice on:

how to make your own stunning nature envelope

appropriate recycled papers and cardboard

how to structure a letter to a politician  

different environmental issues (if you need inspiration)

 

All materials provided but we recommend you bring your favourite

letter-writing pen.

 

This is a FREE event. We know!

But numbers are limited and as there is a smidge of catering involved

you need to book your seat at the big old table.

 

Find us on Instagram @wildletterclub

and see you soon on a wintery Saturday arvo in July.
