On now: alongside Memories of the Fun Palace, come and see the Litter Bugs! This summer families have been working with local artist Michelle Reader making sculptures from litter found on Walthamstow Marshes.  As well as a dragonfly made from motorbike parts and a butterfly made from an old watering can, there are many other bugs, beasts and birds inspired by the wildlife of the marshes.
