WOODLAND LUMIERE AT RAVENINGHAM - A twinkling walk through magical woods and gardens at twilight with art, music, poetry and film. 12 local artists have been brought together by artist Sarah Cannell during the recent lockdown to create artworks for the first Woodland Lumiere at the site of the Raveningham Sculpture Trail in South Norfolk. The artists created works in their studios during lockdown ranging from giant moths, marsh pony fire sculptures, crocheted mushrooms, a harbour full of willow boats, sculptural barn owls, poetry, film and music inspired by the local area. The project was funded by Creative Odyssey CIC, a community interest company creating arts projects in nature to inspire and soothe the soul.

“In January this year I was very excited be asked to get involved in making moths from willow and tissue paper for the Woodland Lumiere. It really gave me a boost to have something fun and creative to work at during the dark months and made the weeks literally fly by. I was shocked to realise how much the Covid lockdown had affected my mood and how ‘slowed down I had become since March 2020 this felt like such a positive, enthusiastic, and creative approach to beating the lockdown blues!!”
