copper blue in situI am excited to be one of nine artists exhibiting at the beautiful Yarner wood reserve as part of this years Devon Open studios (venue 84). Refreshments and toilet facilities are available at the Woodland Centre on saturday 7th and Sunday 8th, Friday 13th, Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th, Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd September between 11.00 am and 6.00 pm daily. The trail is accessible during the event on other days but some installations will not be switched on and the Woodland Centre will be closed.The wood dates back many centuries and is recognized as an internationally important example of Western Oak woodland.  It is a great place for lichens and mosses which thrive in the damp conditions and for birds and butterflies.  The woods have had a long history of human involvement from the charcoal coppicing centuries ago to copper mining and Victorian planting, and more recently, for public access and for education and research.
