Workshops promote sculpture in gardens

Myerscough College has launched a series of workshops to showcase techniques for creating art in the garden. Salina Somalya is project manager for the creation of artwork in the college garden.

Somalya has organised the workshops with artists Julia Barton, Alexandra Hamilton, Janice Bradshaw, Amanda Healy and Iain Cant. The project will create an outdoor exhibition open to the public.

Somalya said: "We are all very excited about these workshops and delighted to have some excellent experts to lead them.

"All the groups involved are hoping it will strengthen their links to the wider community as well as helping to develop each individual's creative skills."

Myerscough staff and students will take part in the art sessions, with pupils from local schools.

The scheme includes work on ceramics, glass, willow, metal, plastic, and mixed media sculpture.
