Some photos from our Andrea Sinclair and William Hudon’s recent exhibition in Sant Boi in Barcelona. Find out more about the exhibition and their artworks here!
And here is Jenny’s poem, which Andrea’s artwork was based upon –
The last sorcerers
with earth air fire and water
sought to understand
the nature of life
blood phlegm black and yellow bile
humours to balance
through their waxing and waning
seasons of disease
heart liver spleen brain
spring summer autumn winter
how warm moist cold dry
how hungry for change
feed them bleed them purge
make them take herbs drink potions
catch tears of a deer
the last sorcerers
understood that the four were
just the beginning
4 Corners group recently took part in the Elephant and Nun festival where they showed work made in response to photographs of the Elephant and Castle and Walworth area. (You can see some of their preparations here – artinthepark.co.uk/four-corners-groups-new-project).
The group are currently on a break and will be starting again, with classes every other Monday, in the New Year.
Last Tuesday, Art in the Park worked with employers from Moodys by holding a teambuilding exercise at the Lensbury Hotel in Teddington. People were divided into groups of 13 and given 1 hour and a half to create a iconic European building. Each 14 groups were amongst 5 rooms holding at least 2 professional artists to work with and advise the teams. The challenge was made competitive with Art in the Park bags containing bars of local chocolate from South London’s Melange as prizes.
There were some impressive structures made and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. Thanks to everyone involved.
As promised, we have some photos of the Open Garden screen printing workshop to share with you!
As part of Chumleigh Garden’s Open Square Weekend of activities we ran a screen printing workshop across the weekend. We had some lovely weather and some even lovlier (and rather talented) screen printers – it was a great weekend!
Thank you to all our volunteers and everyone who worked so hard to make the weekend a great success.
As well as an art trail around the beautiful Chumleigh Gardens and a screen printing workshops (more lovely photos of these to come soon….) we opened up our studio to the public and filled it with some recent work by our artists.
And stay tuned for more blog posts and gorgeous photographs of some of the other things we were up to that weekend!
We had such a wonderful time this weekend at Burgess Park May Fair. Take a look below at some of the highlights of the day!

A freshly printed bag is revealed!
Adults and children made their own patterns in the bricks and embedded seeds into them.
Thanks to everyone who took part in our brick making and screen printing workshops – what a lot of creative and talented people!!
