Houghton Hall, Norfolk

Skyspace, Houghton Hall

Skyspace, Houghton Hall

Today Stewart and I visited Houghton Hall.

A Palladian Mansion set within an award winning Garden, sculpture,museum and

deer park.

Houghton Hall was built by Sir Robert Walpole,Britain’s first Prime Minister. 

We were impressed with the sculpture within amazing gardens but

John Turrel’s art work ‘Skyspace’ is so inspiring and contemplative space within it’s woodland setting.

The visit to Houghton Hall  has inspired some ideas for some more sculpture in our garden,

 so watch this space.

See my blog for some more of our visit and sculptures of Houghton Hall.

The Hungry Caterpilla

Hungry Caterpilla

Hungry Caterpilla

This is one of the artworks I use as a demonstration piece for a children’s art workshop I am giving next week as a Norfolk Community Artist.  The Hungry caterpilla is one of my favourite childrens stories that I used to read to Jenn and at School.

The Hungry Caterpilla is cut out of a napkin and stuck onto card before applying it to the background.

The flowers move and the Ladybird moves up and down her leaf.

See more of  how the workshop went and the results from the artists of the future
