Overwrought Sculpture Garden and Gallery
Overwrought Sculpture Garden and Gallery is an inspiring creative retail enterprise set on lush farmland in Blampied, Central Victoria just eight minutes from Daylesford on the Midland Highway to Ballarat. Artist David Dawson and his team create his uniquely Australian sculptural metalwork designs in his extensive workshop. He then displays them next door in the rustic hay-shed gallery and beautifully landscaped garden setting that he has created. His creations include garden art, native Australian animals and birds, furniture, wall art, magnetic creatures and privacy screens. Here you can find a huge variety of native plants, trees, ponds, dry creek beds, cactus rockeries, waterfalls and lawn peppered with Davids' creations. You can wander or sit by the ponds or waterfalls and listen to the frogs in this tranquil setting.The gallery has been transformed from a rustic hay shed to a light high roofed space that still incorporates elements from its farming past. Here you can buy the art and produce of thirty local and fair trade artisans, many whose work is not available to purchase elsewhere. The range includes indigenous ceramics, paintings, prints and photography, jewellery, woodwork and home wares. With your comfort always in mind we also have a coffee cart in our gallery serving delicious artisan coffee, hot chocolate and chai from Ballarat based businesses Coffee Pirates and Grounded Pleasures with milk from local Inglenook Dairy. Sweet and savory treats are also available to be enjoyed in our gallery or at one of the many tables scattered amongst the ponds and greenery of our sculpture garden. With our resident artist on site weekdays you can include a guided tour of our studio workshop in your visit. Get in touch to make a booking. We have toilets, good access and ample parking for caravans and buses. We look forward to having you visit us.

Wild Mindfulness Australia
Our Mindfulness Forest Tour takes you on a half day hiking experience through the magnificent Wombat State Forest where we introduce you to the ideas of mindfulness whilst leading you on a relaxing and rejuvenating journey through the forest.
Throughout our walk we seek to develop a connection with the forest by tuning in to the present environment. We stop for two seated meditations along the way where you will practice hearing, seeing and sensing the forest in ways that both relax and inspire us.
