Find out all about the hidden lives of stoats and weasels and glimpse a new family of animal TV stars before they feature in a new BBC Natural World Series at this fascinating wildlife art exhibition.
Artist Robert E Fuller devoted 5 years to following wild weasels and stoats in his Yorkshire garden for this art show. His studies will soon feature on BBC Natural World, a series produced by the BBC Natural History Unit - the esteemed filmmakers behind Blue Planet and Planet Earth.
See his final paintings and watch never-before seen footage of these secretive mammals at this unique event. Small, swift and deeply secretive, stoats and weasels have a reputation for cunning brutality. But until now, no one has actually studied their behaviour in any detail.
Robert Fuller deployed more than 60 surveillance cameras in his garden, getting to know six generations of the same stoat family. What he discovered upturns common misconceptions about these little-known animals.
The exhibition includes live cameras offering visitors a glimpse of weasels and stoats as they clamber over dry stone walls and disappear into their underground nests.
There will also be screens displaying the best of Robert's footage; including films of stoats swimming with the competence of mini-otters in tiny ponds!
Storyboards detailing this fascinating research project and introducing visitors to the individual stoat and weasel characters due to feature on TV will also be on display.
This event is free and refreshments will be served.
