Expressions creative arts festival brings outdoors inside

Expressions, the creative arts festival run by Milestones Trust, is back for its fourth year of stunning installations, surprising art and sensory stimulation. From April, the outdoors is brought inside in a fabulous landscape of interactive art.

Date: Saturday 13 April – Sunday 21 April 2013
Time: 10.30am – 6pm
Venue: The Paintworks, Bath Road, Bristol BS4 3EH
Entry is free.

Milestones Trust’s service users will be working alongside professional artists in the run up to the event, to bring the outside in, creating an indoor garden fete, secret garden, park and much more.

Enter the exhibition through the craft marquee, bush-whack your way through the enchanted forest of hanging trees, follow the needle-felt sculpture trail, brave the spooky graffiti tunnel and be rewarded by the beauty of the secret garden with its knitted plants. Make birds, flowers and tiny boats to sail down the stream and into the park pond, where you will find an outdoor café, games and a bandstand.

The first weekend of the festival will be packed full of workshops and exhibition talks. You can try needle-felting, knitting, photography, drawing, electronic music-making and much more.

Visit to see the week-long programme of events nearer the time.

Join us with a playful mind for the most inclusive arts event of the year.  knitted green veg_webuploadknitted fruit_webupload
