Thursday 27th June comments: Today book illustrator Kate Slater brought a new and exciting art exhibition to the Chapel on Inner Farne, as a 'Farnes flock' was reproduced covering all the breeding seabirds of the Farne Islands.

Kate has created her illustrations using collage, creating images by cutting up old magazines and other found paper. The results are remarkable with over 450 birds suspended from the Chapel rooftop with each bird having been cut out by hand. The exciting project can be seen by all visitors to Inner Farne as the Chapel is open throughout the normal opening period. Normal prices will apply and we hope lots of people will visit to enjoy something special and unique for the Farne Islands.
