The award-winning Wilderness Festival is soon approaching, and we are very excited for the vast array of music, food, performances and relaxation that awaits! What’s more, this year’s festival has a special addition of affordable art classes at the Wilderness Studio.
This is a follow-up of our series highlighting the gifted Bridgeman Studio artists that are taking part in the festival activity in Oxfordshire’s beautiful Cornbury Estate.

Got your hands full with all the Wilderness goodies available? Artist Katie Edwards will teach you screenprinting techniques to help you walk away with your own original tote bag, ready to fill up with as many Wilderness treasures as you can manage.
Katie Edwards is a London-based English illustrator who studied Graphic Arts and Design at Leeds Metropolitan University. She has previously produced illustrations for editorial, publishing, advertising and design purposes, and has been featured in a number of galleries. Her clients include Mail on Sunday, Saturday Times, Radio Times, National Australia Bank and Boss Card’s.
Edwards was also our winner of the Bridgeman Studio Award 2014, thanks to her imaginative interpretation of the theme ‘Joy’ and the technical skill and commercial sensibility of her works.
Her charming and often witty screenprints are created using a mix of traditional photographic techniques, collage and hand-drawn images. Find out more about the artist on her website.
THE WILDERNESS STUDIO With Bridgeman Studio
Fine Art, in a field, at a festival…
Set inside a canvas marquee, the studio boasts a classroom space, exhibition shop and reception. From life drawing to graphic illustration, paper sculpture to collage, screen printing to lomography, Wilderness are working with contemporary partners to deliver art classes with a difference.
The aim is to not only expose the lay creative to new skills but to brush off the slightly middle-age dust associated with art classes, bringing a contemporary flavour. Read more
Wilderness Festival will take place this summer from 6 – 9 August in Cornbury Park, Oxfordshire.
