Flow Country

Peat bogs are an extremely effective carbon sink and are an important habitat for rare wildlife. Art Space and Nature, through tutors Ross McLean and Donald Urquhart, are working in partnership with the RSPB to raise awareness about restoration of the peat lands of the Flow Country.

The Flow country is located in the North of Scotland and can be seen HERE

ASN students spent just under a week in Forsinard exploring the environment. The Flow Country’s landscape is unique. Although it may be subtle in appearance, it is abundant with life and is a very diverse ecosystem. The restoration project faces many obstacles and to encourage a larger enthusiasm towards the landscape, the ASN students will produce a series of artist books responding to the trip and develop work for exhibition.
