Award-winning sculptor and author DJ Garrity will be conducting a garden sculpture workshop at Bantry House & Gardens this July
Garrity who lives in the west of Ireland is the former sculptor-in-residence of the US Mount Rushmore National Memorial. The artist developed the hands-on workshop at Mount Rushmore as an interpretive training programme in collaboration with the National Park Service of America, and has subsequently conducted the workshop at botanic gardens and museums in America and Europe.
Basing activities on his book The Rhythms Of Stone, the artist leads participants with no previous experience in a creative process using simple hand tools to create their own unique sculpture in stone for the home, garden or gallery. The workshop has been well-received by artists, garden societies and the lifelong learning community.
The workshop fee is €285 and includes materials and use of hand tools for the workshop. Reservations are advised.
