Justin Carter is the latest artist in residence at Fineshade Wood.
His installation, Blood from Stone – Impressions of Life, is inspired by the regional relationship between Oak and Ore and the forest as a site of ancient industry.
Justin is Reader in Contemporary Practice: Art & Environment and Lecturer in Sculpture & Environmental Art at Glasgow School of Art.

Susannah O'Riordan is the Roots of Rockingham Project Officer for Back from the Brink.

Susannah will discuss the reintroduction of the Chequered Skipper butterfly, extinct in England since 1976, and the restoration and management of a network of woodland sites across the Rockingham Forest area, creating more habitat in which vulnerable species can thrive.
