Sculpture in the Castle House garden from local artists Dido Windham and Nick Helme
Dido Windham – Having studied art to A level, Dido took up sculpture after her four children had grown up and left home. She joined the Hay Sculpture Group in 2005 and, with the encouragement of other group members, she had some of her pieces cast in bronze. Her body of work includes a life-sized horse’s head, dogs, toddlers and many smaller pieces for the mantelpiece. Commissions: shobdonfarm@btinternet.com
Nick Helme – Raised on a Herefordshire farm, Nick gained an early love of nature. After an Honours Degree in Botany and Zoology he went on to study ceramics at Hereford Art College. He has exhibited at the NEC Birmingham, the Corn Exchange Edinburgh, Harrogate Fair and Cork Street Gallery, London. Nick’s works and photographs appear in many private collections around the UK and abroad. nickhelme.co.uk
