Get festival ready with Isobel Barber at Wilderness workshop

Set in the ancient parkland of Oxfordshire’s Cornbury Estate, Wilderness Festival is the multi-award winning 4-day festival combining live music, contemporary arts and an array of theatre, craftsmanship and dining experiences. A new concept for 2015, the Wilderness Studio aims to bring affordable art classes to the wilds.  This is the first of our series highlighting the Bridgeman Studio artists taking part.

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 .
