FIONA CAMPBELL, fresh from making the copper woven canopy for this year’s Viking Cruises show garden at RHS Chelsea Flower Show, will be demonstrating her sculpting techniques. Her sculptures are made from recycled materials such as copper, plastic, wool and twine. For ages 8+ to 80s, a fun day of watching an artist at work and maybe even try your hand at making some art!
Demonstrations between 11am and 5pm. Visitors can pop in at any time of the day and stay for as long as they please.
Artist Talk – 3pm Fiona will be talking about her work and career, including her methods and inspiration from natural forms.
FIONA will also be exhibiting a selection of her outdoor sculptures, from a giant copper nest to a spider and its web.
This event celebrates our 5th year of being open for Chelsea Fringe. The event is free and no booking is necessary. Visitors can wander round the private garden and exhibition and watch Fiona at work.
