Arts in the Marches
Welcome to “Arts in the Marches”, an arts company based in the heart of the Marches, the border between England and Wales.
Founded by Frances Warren, sculptor and maker, Arts in the Marches offers a range of activities for artists and people interested in art, including:-
Arts in the Marches Creative Workshops provide an opportunity to learn a new skill or brush up on an existing skill, and to make friends. Workshops are small to ensure everyone gets the help and advice they need. All workshops usually include homemade refreshments and light lunch. However during the time of Covid we are following social distancing guidelines and everyone brings their own refreshments.
Stone Carving Workshops
Arts in the Marches runs monthly stone carving workshops for beginners and experienced carvers. Led by Glenn Morris, multi media sculptor and stone mason, in our studio in Llangarron. Students work on their own projects, at their own pace, with expert support and guidance from Glenn. A small informal group, we enjoy ourselves and are always happy to welcome new members.
Stone Carving Workshops Gift Vouchers
If you fancy trying out a new skill or think a day stone carving would make a perfect present for a family member or friend,we offer gift vouchers.
An Arts in the Marches Stone carving Voucher can be purchased in advance and then used when convenient; simply call or email to make the booking.
The voucher includes stone carving tuition from Glenn Morris, use of all tools and safety equipment and refreshments throughout the day, including a hot lunch. There may be a small additional charge for the stone you chose to use.
Please do get in touch for further details:
In September 2014 Arts in the Marches opened as a sculpture garden during h.Art week - the week when artists and craft makers in Herefordshire open their studios and is usually held in the second week of September each year. This was so successful we did it again in 2015, when we also ran an exhibition for our local Hospice. In both years we had a fantastic week welcoming over 800 visitors and sold many pieces. We couldn't have done it without the enormous help and support of friends and neighbours. We have added photographs of these exhibitions and a selection of the artwork below. We really enjoyed participating in h.Art and hope to again in the near future.
26 years ago we bought a house with a garden which was mainly field with the odd (very odd!) shrub and tree. We have developed our gardening ideas and ambitions over our time here, and are currently working hard to landscape and generally improve the design of unloved corners and tidy up overgrown areas. Arts in the Marches is a domestic garden, combining formal beds and lawns with wildlife ponds, fruit, vegetables, bees and chickens – providing what we hope is a pleasant setting for some interesting and stunning sculptures.
