Exhibition change-over

19 May - 22 May 2015

Please be aware: we will be changing shows from Tuesday 19 – Friday 22 May.

Kestle Barton will remain open and you are welcome to enjoy the garden, along with our light refreshments; and also to wonder the grounds to enjoy the wild flower meadow in bloom and to view the progress of Paul Chaney’s Encampment Supreme, but viewing in the gallery will be compromised. We apologise for any inconvenience.



Encampment Supreme with Paul Chaney

2 May - 30 May 2015

A temporary pavilion designed by artist Paul Chaney.

This structure, a continuation of Paul’s ongoing research into low impact ‘grass roots’ architecture, promises to be unprecedented exploration of building with bent hazel and found waste.

Made using only traditional vernacular building techniques and post-consumer waste, and built during a series of public workshops, the pavilion will house some of Kestle Barton’s summer events.

Kestle Barton is looking for volunteers who might be interested to work with Paul on this project. Please contact us if you are interested.
