Out of the Woods

An exhibition of art inspired by Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust woodlands is taking place at the Ferrers Centre, Staunton Harold.

Local artists Peter Clayton, Michelle Holmes and Sarah Kirby have been making work to raise awareness of woodland managed by the Trust.

The trio visited woodlands at Dimminsdale, Ulvescroft, Launde Big Wood, Launde Park Wood and Great Merrible Wood nature reserves to create paintings, lino prints and pieces using fabric and stitch.

The results of their labours will be on show, and for sale, between Saturday June 2 and Sunday June 17 at Archangel Studio, the Ferrers Centre, Staunton Harold, near Ashby de la Zouch, LE65 1RU. (Open Tuesday – Sunday, 11am–5pm.)

Please call 01332 863 376 for further information and see www.ferrerscentre.co.uk/archangel-studio/ for details of the studio.

A percentage of the profits from the exhibition will be donated to the Trust. 

You can combine a viewing of the exhibition and a visit to one of the Trust’s woodlands. Dimminsdale nature reserve is a short distance away (nearest postcode LE65 1RT).
