See Katie Millard demonstrating how to paint trees in watercolours, in the main gallery today, from 10.15 am – 4.30 pm.

Ben says: I don’t have any special interest in trying to interpret anything by carving wood or for that matter in creating anything else. I have ideas and stories, pieces of wood and tools, which I put together to expose the wood where I think that it interprets the idea or story… Read more about Ben-Platt-Mills.
