As per the Section 106 Agreement, a public art panel has met to discuss the fulfilment of the public art for the scheme. The panel had input from the Farnham Public Art Trust, the University of Creative Arts, the Farnham Society and Farnham Maltings.
Artist Patrick Walls will create life-size artisan figures carved in sandstone representing different craftspeople at work in a celebration of the historic craftsmanship in Farnham. Installation will begin in 2023.
Artist Kerry Lemon’s series of unique hand-drawn illustrations linking the past, present and future of craft in Farnham will be transposed onto the surface of 13 paving stones to form a public art trail which people can take rubbings from. The trail will start from the pedestrian link in East Street, towards the river, and will weave past the craft figures.
Both installations will reflect Farnham’s rich craft history and celebrate its eminent position as a world class destination for craft.
