Perry Wood Art Trail

Woodland Painting: One of Sally Higgs’ Four Seasons large 8ftx6ft mixed media paintings of Perry Wood.

Drawing Room: Sally will lead a drawing workshop to construct an ‘evolving planet’.

Storytelling, Dance & Music: Spirits of the forest move among us.
Join with the woodland to create movement. ‘Arcaya’ will lead informal dance for all, with storytelling at 2pm.

Evolving Planets: Tanya Jones & Sally Higgs collaborate to produce a series of globes: a collision of media!

Recycle installation: Sheran Baker makes Art from discarded materials: dead rose petals, used tea leaves and tea bags.

The Heart – is this where it started?
Huge Rhododendrons, twisted and bent into strange forms may have been the beginning of the plantation now found throughout that area of the woods.
(Patricia Wilson Smith)

Painting on Perspex: Tanya Jones’ work reflects her interest in art, science and the environment.

Science Lab: an ‘interactive’ forest lab to encourage children and adults to explore the natural environment of Perry Woods – Tanya Jones in collaboration with Ray Newsam from the Biosciences department at the University of Kent.

Antler Shelter: Kate Windsor’s work celebrates the magic of childhood and survival in the wild.

The Dragon: A seven-foot driftwood dragon created by Ella Challis.

Outdoor Painting Demonstration: James Bradley will demonstrate some painting techniques.

Sculpture Workshop: Building from found materials with Kate Windsor.

Poet Tree: Visitors are invited to take Lesley Macintyre’s poem home with them.

Children’s Art: A selection of work produced in workshops throughout the year.

‘Top Trunks’: Can you collect the whole set?
Along the trail you will have seen photographs of special trees in the woods. Pick up a map and see if you can spot any of them on your walks. Come back and check the results – for every one you find you’ll get a colour sticker!
