Celebrate the launch of The Orchard’s new sign by hearing the artist talk about her process, then explore mark making outdoors in a brass-rubbing workshop to make your own orchard poster. Refreshments and materials provided.
The event is part of a lively programme of public art projects, talks, workshops and trips that take as a starting point ideas evoked by the Whitchurch and Hengrove Community Orchard.
Kayle Brandon: Dot in the Landscape
Artist Kayle Brandon’s new sign is sited at The Orchard, providing information about the fruit varieties, origins of apple trees and the grafting process. It is also a brass rubbing for people to create their own copy. Paper and wax sticks available at Whitchurch Library.

Future Perfect is an ambitious public art programme for Hengrove in south Bristol, commissioned by Bristol City Council and curated by Theresa Bergne (Field Art Projects) and Jes Fernie. The programme consists of three commissions by international artists Martino Gamper, Nils Norman and David Thorpe. All three artists have had extensive, fruitful conversations with local people, groups and schools in Hengrove throughout the process of developing their work.
