Artmoor Haven

A community creative hub promoting creative wellbeing based at The Clay Factory on the edge of Dartmoor and Ivybridge.

Over a period of several weeks a group of 10 people worked together to explore the topic of mental health through art, making working primarily out of cardboard and other recycled materials. Some of the participants had little to no art experience. Together they worked to produce this exhibition which includes interactive stations where visiting members of the public may choose to contribute to the exhibition should they wish. Also on display will be collaborative output from over 1 year of The Art Club and also monthly 'Walk, Meditate, Create' day retreats.

This promises to be an exciting and unique exhibition, suitable for all ages, encouraging dialogue on mental health and the role creativity can play. Entrance is free and you may come along any day. However, to join us on the open evening please email to reserve your place.

The RedPod Food cafe will be open,serving delicious vegan meals and refreshments.  Please email for the menu and to book meals in advance (essential for us to avoid food waste).

Many thanks to One Devon for providing a grant to run our mental health art project!


When leaving Ivybridge heading towards Bittaford, turn left up David's Lane, BEFORE you reach The Clay Factory / big chimney.

If you are coming from the Bittaford direction, turn right up David's Lane, AFTER The Clay Factory / big chimney.

This will take you over the railway, around the sharp right bend and then follow the road alongside the railway track. There is free parking at the front and alongside the building.

(The postcode is PL21 0EZ which you may like to use, but please DON'T follow your satnav at the last turn, or it will take you to the wrong side of the building - make sure to turn up David's Lane instead).

It is a 20 minute walk from Ivybridge train station. It is a 10 minute walk from the nearest bus station at Davy's Cross (GOLD or X38 bus, get off opposite the new housing estate in between Ivybridge and Bittaford).
