Wednesday 1st August 2018 Exhibition: Work of Heart Garden Work of Heart Garden
Wednesday 1 August - Wednesday 29 August

South Transept

The first ever full-sized knitted show garden installation for the RHS will be on display at Gloucester Cathedral following its debut at RHS Malvern Spring Festival in May this year.

The Work of Heart Garden is a labour of love, created by Clare Young. After Clare’s husband Ken was cared for in his final weeks of life at Sue Ryder’s Leckhampton Court Hospice, Gloucestershire, she wanted to say thank you by raising funds and awareness for the charity. Clare had started knitting again after her psychologist suggested it could help ease the anxiety and PTSD she’d been diagnosed with after Ken’s death, and so she began knitting items to sell for the hospice, then yarn bombed a tree in the grounds as a creative way of thanking volunteers and staff. Clare was helped in the garden’s creation by her team of knitting friends, The Chief Knits, and also worked with local knitting and community groups

“I’ve been very clear from the start that I wanted to recreate the calm and tranquillity that I felt at the hospice through my garden,” explains Clare. “It’s a hospice bedroom, but a garden, so we have grass on the floor – all knitted obviously – with wallpaper on the walls.”

Clare had started knitting again after her psychologist suggested it could help ease the anxiety and PTSD she’d been diagnosed with after Ken’s death, and so she began knitting items to sell for the hospice, then yarn bombed a tree in the grounds as a creative way of thanking volunteers and staff. Clare was helped in the garden’s creation by her team of knitting friends, The Chief Knits, and also worked with local knitting and community groups

“I’ve been very clear from the start that I wanted to recreate the calm and tranquillity that I felt at the hospice through my garden,” explains Clare. “It’s a hospice bedroom, but a garden, so we have grass on the floor – all knitted obviously – with wallpaper on the walls.”

19:30Haydn:The Creation - Gaudeamus ChoraleHaydn:The Creation - Gaudeamus Chorale

Thursday 16 August 7.30pm

Gloucester Cathedral

Many commentators believe that Haydn was inspired to write The Creation after hearing Handel’s Messiah and Judas Maccabeus. But, when appearing on Desert Island Discs, the distinguished double bassist Chi-chi Nwanoku, focused on the story that Haydn had been invited to look at the heavens through William Herschel’s telescope. It is a wonderful image to carry in your mind as chaos gives way to light, and solo archangels Raphael, Uriel and Gabriel carry forward the story of creation, so enthusiastically taken up by the chorus. Come and enjoy Haydn’s masterpiece performed by the 100 strong Gaudeamus Chorale with stunning soloists in the perfect acoustic of Gloucester’s cathedral setting.

All funds raised from the concert will go towards Cancer Research UK’s life saving research and help bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.

 Exhibition: Work of Heart Garden Work of Heart Garden
Wednesday 1 August - Wednesday 29 August

South Transept

The first ever full-sized knitted show garden installation for the RHS will be on display at Gloucester Cathedral following its debut at RHS Malvern Spring Festival in May this year.

The Work of Heart Garden is a labour of love, created by Clare Young. After Clare’s husband Ken was cared for in his final weeks of life at Sue Ryder’s Leckhampton Court Hospice, Gloucestershire, she wanted to say thank you by raising funds and awareness for the charity. Clare had started knitting again after her psychologist suggested it could help ease the anxiety and PTSD she’d been diagnosed with after Ken’s death, and so she began knitting items to sell for the hospice, then yarn bombed a tree in the grounds as a creative way of thanking volunteers and staff. Clare was helped in the garden’s creation by her team of knitting friends, The Chief Knits, and also worked with local knitting and community groups

“I’ve been very clear from the start that I wanted to recreate the calm and tranquillity that I felt at the hospice through my garden,” explains Clare. “It’s a hospice bedroom, but a garden, so we have grass on the floor – all knitted obviously – with wallpaper on the walls.”

Tuesday 28th August 2018 Exhibition: Work of Heart Garden Work of Heart Garden
Wednesday 1 August - Wednesday 29 August

South Transept

The first ever full-sized knitted show garden installation for the RHS will be on display at Gloucester Cathedral following its debut at RHS Malvern Spring Festival in May this year.

The Work of Heart Garden is a labour of love, created by Clare Young. After Clare’s husband Ken was cared for in his final weeks of life at Sue Ryder’s Leckhampton Court Hospice, Gloucestershire, she wanted to say thank you by raising funds and awareness for the charity. Clare had started knitting again after her psychologist suggested it could help ease the anxiety and PTSD she’d been diagnosed with after Ken’s death, and so she began knitting items to sell for the hospice, then yarn bombed a tree in the grounds as a creative way of thanking volunteers and staff. Clare was helped in the garden’s creation by her team of knitting friends, The Chief Knits, and also worked with local knitting and community groups

“I’ve been very clear from the start that I wanted to recreate the calm and tranquillity that I felt at the hospice through my garden,” explains Clare. “It’s a hospice bedroom, but a garden, so we have grass on the floor – all knitted obviously – with wallpaper on the walls.”
