Inspired by landscape

A small exhibition of ceramic and cast marble art pieces inspired by Avebury and the surrounding landscape by artist Sarah Hobley.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event

From a background in art history, artist Sarah Hobley is fascinated by the imprint of our forebears on the Wiltshire landscape and how that imprint can be lost or conserved.

Visit the seventeenth century threshing barn in Avebury's old farmyard to see a selection of her fantastic new pieces taking inspiration from the local landscape. All the pieces are for sale, starting from £60.

The barn is open 10am - 5pm daily, and is free to visit.
