Event description

Description

Forgot folksy teapots or conventional balls and cones: as part of our exhibition celebrating wood, Jake Hobson will talk on the Art of Creative Topiary on Wednesday 26 July at 6:30pm. Jake studied sculpture at the Slade, then travelled to Japan where he became so enamoured by the Japanese art of cloud pruning that he swapped his chisel for shears and has never looked back. Today he is one of the country's leading experts on finding the natural form in trees, shrubs and hedges, relating them to the context of the gardens in which they sit - and adding an extra, beautifully sculptural element to the landscape. His company Niwaki, which also supplies specialist pruning equipment, is based in Semley, just north of Shaftesbury.
