The informal talk will take place in the garden, and will last approximately 45 – 60 minutes. Visitors will be able to ask questions as well as view the garden and other works in the exhibition. These include works by Peter Clarke, Paul Cox, Jonathan Garratt, Helen Nock and Lisa Pettibone and Patricia Volk.
The talk is free but please book ahead by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or telephone (020 7435 0510) as places are limited.

Alison Oldham gave the Garden Sculpture & Ceramics exhibition a glowing review. Here are some of her comments. One joy of this display is the way nearly 200 items fit into the garden setting, emerging from luxuriant shrubs or accentuating the forms of plants. All are inventive interventions that enhance rather than intrude. Everywhere you look in this garden show there is something to delight the gaze.
