Today, Wednesday 11 September 2013, woodcarver & sculptor Ben Platts-Mills will be demonstrating wood-carving techniques at the Artworks exhibition.
Ben Platts-Mills : Carving with a Chainsaw
Ben says: Sometimes I am given a tree and a story, sometimes just an idea and a place. Or put another way, I make things in public spaces to do with situations and places within limits set by people and materials.
Watch Ben Platts-Mills creating exciting & innovative sculpture out of wood, from 10.15 am – 4.30 pm.
Stay tuned to the blog for daily exhibition news, as a different artist will be demonstrating in the Artworks exhibition every day.
