Braving the unreliable summer weather six of us met at the Sussex Prairie Gardens on 27th July. The 8 acres of gardens are planted in bold swathes of colour & texture and amongst the planting can be found a variety of interesting sculptures. A crocodile and giraffe were seen but not captured on camera. Further inspiration was also found from the resident textile and mixed media artists Emma Taylor and Amanda Duke. Their work prompted discussion of the workshop sessions we have organised this past year.
The garden is currently exhibiting the longest strip of decorated denim which was draped along the fences, wrapped around a shed and entwined around a tree. Over 1 km long the decorated panels explain the ugly facts about the process of denim production.
