Farnham Heath Nature Reserve Farnham Surrey GU10 2DL


Discover some unusual and exciting artworks on the Farnham Heath Nature Reserve this autumn. Twelve temporary works have been made by local emerging artists studying Craft, Product Design and Textiles at the University for the Creative Arts in Farnham as part of a project called Heathland Artworks.

All of the artworks are inspired by the heath and its wildlife and can be found amongst the trees and at the breathtaking viewpoints. Discover interactive kaleidoscopes, ceramic wheels displaying the native birds, printed woven textiles and more… Peer through some giant kaleidoscopes to create patterns of the natural materials from the heath, and rotate the ceramic wheels that bear the birds, reptiles and insects that live there.

Heathland Artworks is a Surrey Hills Arts project and provides a new way to view and learn about the

heath.

Mike Coates, RSPB Ranger, Farnham Heath comments;
“Our reserve at Farnham Heath is great for wildlife, but it’s also a place for people to visit. This temporary exhibition will add a new element to the site, and hopefully attract a new audience to enjoy the reserve.”

Heathland Artworks is open for visitors at Farnham Heath from June 21st – 28th October and is free of charge.
