I really enjoyed my visit to Pat Elmore’s studio and landscaped sculpture garden. The weather was good and Pat took the time to talk around the gallery, the garden and the workshop. It was a real privilege.
Pat started sculpting in 1980, is a member of the Royal Society of British Artists and has exhibited around the world. She kindly allowed me to take photographs, so that you can enjoy a virtual visit, if you cannot make the trip to Oxfordshire.
Pat takes part is different Open Studios events and Art Weeks and this is a good way to discover her studio and see the sculptures in the garden. If you miss these, Pat receives visitors by Appointment throughout the year (contact her through her website http://www.patelmore.co.uk/).
Pat also runs sculpture courses at Nutford Lodge on Tuesdays from 10am until 2pm.
