Farnham Heath Nature Reserve Farnham Surrey GU10 2DL
Surrey Hills Arts will be installing artworks across Farnham Heath as part of a project called Heathland Artworks. A series of works have been made by local emerging artists studying Craft, Product Design and Textiles at the University for the Creative Arts in Farnham. The pieces have been inspired by the heath and its wildlife and include sculptural sound waves captured from the birdsong on the heath, and curious woollen ‘spine trees’ to wander through. Handmade birds depicting species that inhabit the heath – cross bill, tree pipit and nightjar will be found perching in the trees allowing visitors to gain a sense of these beautiful species often unseen through their clever camouflage and nocturnal habits.
Heathland Artworks provides a new way to view and learn about the heath and will be open for visitors at Farnham Heath from June 21st – September 2017 and is free of charge.
