The wildlife that inhabits our shores, forests and wetlands are under threat. This very real danger to the diversity of our environment has inspired artist, Jayne Ivimey into action. Over the last five years she has curated an exhibition that immortalises the British birds that need help.

Formed in clay, the models contrast the agile elegance of birds in flight with the fixed nature of the material they are made with - an inspiring call to consider the ways we can all help save 29% of UK birds from extinction.

This exhibition will take place in our courtyard and is free to all.
