UNIVERSITY OF BRISTOL BOTANIC GARDEN
EASTER SCULPTURE FESTIVAL
FRIDAY 30 MARCH – 2 APRIL 2018 10AM-5PM

Dragon’s egg planters, ghost flowers glistening in the twilight, stained glass masterpieces to brighten the gloomiest of days, stone flautists and graceful cranes,  are a few of the delights to see at this year’s Easter Sculpture Festival
The Botanic Garden makes a perfect environment for displaying both traditional and modern sculpture with its constantly changing natural light and backdrop of architectural plants, colours and textures.

Now an established event in the south west arts and gardening calendar, this year’s Festival features more sculptors than ever before, working in a wide range of different materials. New sculptors include chainsaw artist, Denius Parson, Hayley Jones (wire work), Kathryn Shorthouse (ceramics), Valda Jackson (bronze) and Colleen Du Pon (steel).

“As the Garden reawakens in springtime local artists who have been inspired by the natural world display their work at the Garden’s Sculpture Festival. This year for the first time chainsaw artist Denius Parson will be demonstrating his art through the use of a chainsaw. This is fast paced and exciting work and I look forward to seeing his work emerge through the Festival Weekend. With the Garden bursting into life, this will create the perfect environment for visitors to enjoy.” Curator, Nick Wray.

Demonstrations of chainsaw sculpting and willow weaving will give visitors a chance to meet the artists and see how they work. A display of Narcissus illustrating all horticultural groups of this colourful spring flower forms a trail through the garden for adults and children to enjoy. With thousands of different well labelled plants set within an intensely planted award winning garden and glasshouses the Botanic Garden attracts people year after year.

Refreshments, Tours of the garden, plants and book sales.
Admission: Adults £6.00. Free to Friends, university staff and students and children under 18.
