Join us in celebrating Summer by letting our stunning garden inspire your creative side! This June/July, we will be inviting you to join us for five different free arts-focused workshops – ‘Art in the Garden’. Through muisc, photography, painting, drawing and writing, we hope to make the most of our beautiful garden space, celebrating and enjoying its beauty. These relaxed, outdoor sessions will help us explore different artistic techniques and create art. As usual for OxGrow, we welcome people of all levels, from absolute novices to experts, to share the space in an inclusive and supportive environment. We’ll culminate the sessions with an exhibition event at the end of July.
