Art Programme – Courses, Workshops and Events
Sculpture Path now up and running from Easter 2017
If you are a regular visitor to the Sculpture Path in our woodland you will notice that many pieces of work are constantly changing through weathering and interesting fungal growths. Winter takes its toll and every Spring the current textile pieces are overhauled, sometimes refurbished and sadly sometimes removed due to excessive deterioration.
As Easter approaches most of that work has been completed and as the new growth emerges in the woodland, gardens and estate it can be the best time to visit. Our young visitors will find new dens they can move around and something a little special over the Easter weekend.
Camila Zaccarelli – 9 June to 7 July
From 9 June to 7 July Rydal Hall will welcome guest artist Camila Zaccarelli from Chile who will be on site creating some unusual South American inspired work in our woodland followed by a collaborative exhibition with Dianne Standen in the Old Schoolroom Teashop during July and August. Open daily 10-5. Waterfall gardens and walks. No admission charges to the Sculpture Path open dawn to dusk daily.
