Artisans in the Gardens

Artisans in the Gardens presents an exciting and diverse range of artworks inspired by nature in all its forms. A celebration of the natural world, Artisans in the Gardens, now in its 17th year, brings together an extraordinary range of artwork. The exhibition showcases some of Australia’s best established and emerging artists and craftspeople with over 2,000 artworks including sculpture, ceramics, hand blown glass, jewellery, textiles, plus so much more.

The exhibition is full of thought-provoking, awe-inspiring, functional and beautiful pieces of art. The artistic inspiration for the works draws on the intrinsic beauty of nature as well as current environmental issues and sustainability.

All items in the exhibition are for sale over the nine-day event, with proceeds going to the artists and to assisting Foundation and Friends of the Botanic Gardens, not-for-profit membership organisation, to continue supporting the Royal Botanic Garden and Domain Trust’s horticulture, conservation, scientific research and educations programs.
