Peckover House is to hold its second Art in the Garden event from July 11 to September 30.

Following the success of last year’s event, local artists, inspired by different aspects of the landscape, will use a variety of materials to create their individual pieces.

Among the artists showcasing their work are: Anne Foxley, who specialises in making large stoneware pots with decoration inspired by the human face, Bob Lever who works with natural materials found in Fenland and Patricianne Jones, who creates bird characters from fabric.

She said: “Each of my pieces are unique in character and take several hours to complete and embellish.

“I hope they make people smile”, she added.
