Our year off
on form is a biennial exhibition, which takes place in all the years which end in even numbers. Our next exhibition will be on form 16. It will open on Sunday 12 June 2016 and, with the exception of Mondays and Tuesdays, it will remain open until Sunday 10 July 2016. We are already working to prepare the garden, gather the sculptors and prepare an eclectic series of talks and events. We very much look forward to welcoming you.
Our application deadline for sculptors has now closed, but If you would like to be part of on form 16 as a writer, administrative assistant or in some other capacity, please email email@example.com. If you are under 30 and would like to apply for our bursary (submission closes 30 October 2015), look here.
We still welcome your comments on previous exhibitions to help us plan for our 2016 exhibition.
on form 14, our seventh exhibition, ran from June 7th to July 6th, 2014. We are very, very thankful to everybody who helped to make those weeks so happy. These include 30 sculptors, numerous assistants, 8,000 visitors, 90 buyers of 108 sculptures, 2 gardeners, 3 booksellers, 40 actors, 1 photographer, 3 designers, 3 chefs, 3 film-makers, a dozen waiters and washers up, and others too numerous to mention, but too lovely to forget. If you're missing us, please watch our film below. You may think from the opening that it is the same film we played in our film room during the show, but in fact it contains a lot of extra footage, showing some moments during the exhibition, and not just the installation.
You can download our price list (and find out which works are SOLD) here.

Time to cut the yew
We are often asked how we keep our wedges of yew so sharp. This is how: Mark Edwards, two ladders and a plank, and some very long hedge cutters.

Scary Little Girls
on form's favourite thesps have a new project, and here is a chance to get involved!
on form in full summer
Our catalogue shots are taken in May, and there are huge changes in the garden before we close in early July. Here are some new photos taken in our last week by Peter van den Berg of the more voluptuous end of the summer. We hope you enjoy them.
A (slightly) rainy day at on form
We try not to worry too much about the weather. Stone sculpture looks sumptuous in the rain, and there are plenty of spaces to take shelter.
Children get carving at Aly Brown's sculpture workshop
12 children joined Aly in the Cowshed field and created their very own unique alabaster sculptures. Much fun was had by all and the children have proudly taken their sculptures home.
