With the support of Trust New Art and the Arts Council England, internationally renowned artists, Heather and Ivan Morison bring to life Berrington's walled garden with an eighteenth century inspired creation. Combining the history of eighteenth century fashions, and using research of how the family might have used the garden. It is also a space for you to connect with Berrington's garden and learn about how we want to raise funds to restore neglected parts of the garden back to their Georgian origins. Recent research and archaeological study has indicated and confirmed that Berrington's Walled Garden and Pleasure Grounds are highly significant. This is because they were designed and created by 'England's greatest gardener' Lancelot 'Capability' Brown. Go on take a look!
Spinning Gold by Rose Tinted Rags
This year we’ve worked closely with the Herefordshire based community art group, ‘Rose Tinted Rags’. They played a part in organising the installation Waste to Waist by ‘Frock On’ in January. Now they’ve designed a Georgian inspired Christmas installation in the Dining Room.
Spinning Gold is made from a series of spun golden threads which are reminiscent of spun sugar. With Neoclassical influences and flamboyant opulent structures this table setting is a chance to see a grand Georgian Christmas banquet in an entirely new way.
