The Brewin Dolphin Artists' Garden

Other Gardens
The Brewin Dolphin Artists’ Garden is a space designed to reflect the working lives of artists and artisan makers, to celebrate them and to remind us of the importance of care and craft.

The garden is a place of contemplation and calm, an outdoor working studio providing inspiration and materials for the artists who would inhabit this space. The four artists include a ceramicist specialising in Japanese porcelain, an oil painter who creates pop-up art on textiles, and a basket maker.

There is a textile dyeing pool and rill waterway along with a large open courtyard and reclaimed corrugated tin barn for the artists to work in. Hand-finished Welsh slate is used in the working areas of the garden.

The planting includes the sources of a variety of artists’ materials, from flowering plants for botanical painting, dye plants and sustainable timber crops such as hazel, Salix and chestnut, all of which can be used in the production of baskets and wicker goods.
