Elements of Sculpture


Journey from sculptor to sculptor to explore the Cathedral’s architecture and contents through worked material.

 A remarkable opportunity to view the works of William Braithwaite, Colin Reid, Almuth Tebbenhoff, Patricia Volk and Peter Walker under one roof.

Five talented sculptors have been invited to place their work within the majestic interior of Winchester Cathedral, specifically in locations which share the same materials to create new and different ways of seeing and understanding the architecture and objects within this historic building.
