Erddig House


International artist Simon O'Rourke is our artist in residence for 2017. Join him in the Timber Yard as he works his magic with timber collected on our estate.

Prepare to be amazed as Simon's objects and characters gradually emerge out of the baulks of timber over the course of the day.

Simon's creations are helping to add an exciting new dimension to our open spaces, as well as offering a talented local artist the opportunity to be inspired and create new work for sale.

Simon's work will be celebrated at this year's month-long apple festival as he is creating an exciting new apple-inspired trail to follow.

Booking not needed.
