With lockdown restrictions imminently relaxing (in England, at least) the prospect of unfettered indoor mingling in galleries and museums is a tempting one. But for those of you still erring on the side of caution – or looking for a breath of fresh air while you get your craft fix – we’ve rounded up the best places to soak up al fresco art. Fickle British weather notwithstanding, these are the outdoor art trails worth donning sturdy boots for (and a raincoat, perhaps).
Location: Wilkieston, Edinburgh
Set over 100 acres of meadow and woodland, Jupiter Artland is home to 35 site-specific sculptures in addition to a seasonal programme of exhibitions and events. Among the permanent commissions is a colourful swimming pool installation by artist Joana Vasconcelos (see Crafts’ issue 279 for more), comprising some 11,366 hand-painted and glazed tiles crafted using traditional methods in a 100-year-old factory in her native Portugal.
