Moving Sands: Join Cumbria Wildlife Trust and artist Irene Rogan for an Art, Science and Environment taster day at Haverigg.

Offering a fascinating view of the invisible and visible world on this hidden coast, experience the dunes in a different way.

Irene Rogan has explored bridging art and science throughout her arts practice and invites you visit her ‘ARTlab’ where microscopes will be set up for you to explore slides showing the invisible to the eye life. Take away an instant photo, listen to music inspired by the dunes by Dave Baker and come along later in the summer to try for yourself and help to create a community artwork in the environment.
