Mossy carpet

Have you heard about the Mossy Carpet? The Mossy Carpet is an artwork by our friends Art and Energy, inspired by moss and made by many people!

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Thousands of individually made pom-poms and textile tufts adorn fleecy felt from Dartmoor, creating a vibrant beautiful mossy carpet. Each moss-like pompom celebrates someone’s small attempt to make the world better for all of life. The Castle Drogo team will be helping make a section of the Mossy carpet from Saturday 8 to Sunday 16 June as part of Great Big Green Week. The activity hut will be open on these days for visitors to come and add their own moss creations (wool is supplied but donations would be more than welcome). This is a free drop in event for anyone who wishes to be part of a creative conversation for the planet.
