Wincanton Town Festival (WTF) and Greening the eARTh gallery commissioned local craft business Bootmakers to run workshops within Wincanton’s two primary schools to create nearly 600 postage stamp crown artworks that have been crafted entirely from found materials. These unique artworks will be exhibited throughout the month of June at the central location of the Greening the eARTh gallery as well as other shops located on Wincanton’s High Street. The exhibition opens on the day of the garden party, Friday 3rd June till Sunday 3rd July.

In addition to the art exhibition, on Friday 3rd June from 12 noon till 6pm, WTF will play host to a festival-style garden party within the walls of the enchanting walled gardens behind the Greening the eARTh gallery (formerly Clementina) that date back to the 18th century. Within these bucolic walls you will experience a lively array of world music, art workshops, demonstrations, food and drink. Bring a picnic and enjoy the day!

This event is sponsored by Wincanton Town Council and South Somerset District Council.
