University of Bristol Botanic Garden Easter Sculpture Festival

About

Sculptural delights inspired by from faraway shores: Greek gods, tagelmust attired Tuareg musicians from the Sahara, a bronze fox skulking across the grass, swirling multimedia figures, stunning stained glass creations and bronze and marble sculptures based on Buddhist prayer wheels are all waiting to welcome the visitor to this year's Sculpture Festival.

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.

The Botanic Garden provides a unique setting with its own backdrop of sculptural elements including soaring bamboos, prehistoric tree ferns, giant leaves and exotic treasures in the glasshouses.

Stained glass designers could not wish for a more enchanting space to show their creations than in the Chinese Medicinal Herb Garden next to the Evolutionary Dell. Jude Goss (Lucian Stained Glass) and Aurora Pozniakow take full advantage of the Bamboo Pavilion to allow their designs to sway in the breeze and dance in the sunlight.

Willow weaver, Maya Wolf, will be teaching visitors her craft and helping them create willow sculptures to take home to their garden. Other attractions include demonstrations by chainsaw wood carver, Denius Parson; children's trails, free tours of the garden. Refreshments in the Holmes, Arts and Crafts mansion.

Tickets:
Adults £8.80 with gift aid (£8.00 without).
Free to Friends of the Garden, University staff and ALL students and children under 18.

Times:
10.00am - 5.00pm 
Friday - Monday
