The Artful Garden


We are sorry but we are not  running this event as part of the Lymm Festival 2018. We hate  to disappoint as we are aware how popular  this event was with people of all ages last year. I know many of you have been inspired to carry on with some sort of art or craft, as I have seen you at our workshops!

We are planning another Artful Garden in 2019, but felt that this year we had to concentrate our energies on opening for the NGS in May.

Don’t forget that there will be a full programme of events for the Lymm Festival in and around the village 21st June – 1st July.

The gardens will be open on our normal weekends during that period -June 8th/9th and July 7th/8th.

Please check our courses page for art and craft classes throughout the year

2017 The Artful Garden event

The Artful Garden is a brand new, family-friendly event offering you the opportunity to meet amazing artists and craftspeople and to support local charitable work.

Join us for a weekend of art-themed fun for all ages where local artists, craftspeople and charities will demonstrate their skills or run mini workshops. Using everything from paper to paint, flowers to fabric, or wood to wire, they will inspire and guide you while you try your hand at something new.

All workshops are included in your ticket price (but the charities would appreciate a donation.)

Browse the many stalls of handcrafted items in a beautiful cottage garden setting. Plants, artwork, and craft materials for sale.
