In the garden

New - Living Sculptures

Calling all budding designers.  To celebrate the first ever RHS Chatsworth Flower Show in 2017 we're experimenting with natural materials and the potential they hold to be transformed into works of art.  Our Living Sculpture session will work with a range of materials and explore some of the permanent sculpture collection and garden features at Chatsworth.
