On-site Sculpture


Tipping Point is part of a UK-wide Arts
project that will feature eighteen sculptures
installed at designated sites throughout the UK.
The artworks and their installation are

Ruthin Craft Centre has been chosen
to host this as a nationally renowned venue
for the applied arts where the public
can view art freely.
