The last day of work amidst a busy Out of Nature exhibition and then followed on Monday by a teaching day with Almeley and Monmouth schools who were experiencing the qualities of form, which enable sculptures to be visually strong without the need for concept.
This blog will continue at a slower pace, but in the meantime, do visit Newport House before the end of the exhibition to see the completed limewood work which has emerged at the Gardener’s Cottage porch in the Walled Garden over the first half of the exhibition. Newport House has been a very special community to be part of for a short, concentrated period. You can experience it – and meet the people who make it all possible – through viewing all the sculptures across the gardens, buying plants in the walled garden and relaxing in the cafe for a break during your visit. Pop in to find out more about The Cart Shed’s work in their demonstration area near the food tent.
