Artisans in the Gardens is an annual showcase of some of the best craft in the nation. Sculptors, ceramicists, jewellers and textile artists will be amongst the many makers on show. The pieces are thought provoking, awe inspiring, functional and bespoke pieces of art.

The Artisans in the Gardens curatorial panel of volunteers selected artists from across Australia to take part in this prestigious event. Among them are established names such as Jacek Wankowski and John Gardner were hand-picked to ensure a wonderfully diverse sculptural component, which will complement the grandest of gardens to the smallest of apartment patios.

The artistic inspiration for the works draws on the intrinsic beauty of nature as well as current environmental issues and sustainability.
