Meet The Rusland Movement

As the Holker Garden Festival gets ready to celebrate its 22nd year, we meet some of the exhibitors that are preparing to make this year’s show the best yet.


The arts and crafts tradition comes to Holker as The Rusland Movement exhibit at the Garden Festival for the very first time. To mark their first appearance at the show, the team of artisan makers are planning to create a large, bespoke piece of furniture especially for the event, alongside which they will exhibit a short film documenting its creation.
