A Wander in the Paper Artists' Garden with Colleen Southwell

Hear from paper sculpture artist Colleen Southwell as she draws on a background in horticulture and connection to the land to create her finely detailed botanical works.

Colleen will take you on a storytelling wander through her country garden, its characters and her tin cottage studio, exploring how her daily and seasonal connection to the life around her guides her work and informs her process. You’re sure to enjoy this discussion about the pleasures and worth of taking the time to pause, observe and appreciate the natural world.

Colleen Southwell's talk marks the first day of Artisans in the Garden 2022 for the 20th Anniversary, a great event to start the anniversary celebration.
