On Saturday 25th September, Carymoor Environmental Centre will be holding an Open Day featuring the exciting premier viewing of a newly installed Carymoor sculpture, an exciting intergenerational art project which has been running over the Summer.



Art work from the workshops will also be on display at Carymoors Open Day as part of Somerset Art Weeks. Combined with one of Carymoors quarterly nature days, entitled Goats, Tigers and Elephants a celebration of Somersets Moths, it promises to be a fun-filled event for the whole family.


Initially instigated by Somerset Art Works via The Company of Voices project and inspired by the magic of Carymoor, sculptor Fiona Campbell led a series of taster and workshop sessions involving groups of volunteers from different age groups. In addition to making individual pieces, all participants contributed to the creation of a large recycled steel and wire sculpture depicting a dragonfly emerging from a nymph cast. This 3 metre piece will be suspended over the beautiful pond area in the Carymoor sensory garden. The sculpture will not only be a visual delight but will also help to educate future visitors of all ages about sustainability and the benefits of recycling that are at the heart of Carymoors philosophy.


The day also offers a beginner's exploration of the weird and wonderful world of moths and their caterpillars, looking at which moths have arrived in the moth trap overnight, with a walk of the site to highlight the plants most useful to them. There will also be moth-themed family-friendly activities going on in and around the centre and fun quizzes for children.


A wonderful opportunity to visit the Centre, there will be refreshments available, including homemade soup from the gardens and Julias delicious homemade cakes. The Centre will be open between 10am and 2pm.
