New Stock at SerenArts Gallery

serenarts gallery latest stock

We have been dipping into the SerenArts Gallery piggy bank and stocking up on lots of lovely new stock. We’ve got new gloves, magnetic brooches, paua shell jewellery and lots of fabulous new designs added to our costume jewellery range. These will all hopefully be on the shelves by this weekend (HGV situation allowing!).

We will also be getting some new wraps / shawls in the coming weeks (photos of those to follow). You notice I have been purposively avoiding using the C word!… but all this lovely Christmas stock would make fantastic pressies!

We look forward to seeing you all at the Tithebarn Workshops very soon.

SerenArts Graphic Design

SerenArts have been doing graphic design work with France Today and French Entrée magazines for some time now. We work closely with the advertising department creating their print and online content. One of the slightly less taxing jobs is the private sales advertisements, where people are usually selling a property in France. They are, however, the ones that can often get you dreaming…

Not a bad little place for about £350k!

Oh well… back to work!

Dog Sitting!

This is Bailey!

The idea was that our son and his fiancé went away on their holidays for a week while we baby sit our furry grandchild!! We thought (rather naively) that we would have Bailey in the gallery with us during the day… what could go wrong?… he’s adorable! He’ll be a great selling gimmick, we thought!

Well, that plan lasted all of an hour before there had to be a rapid change of plan and Serena would paint at home with her ‘little helper’! Cute as he is, at 8 months old he was just a tad too boisterous for our little gallery space. Much happier at home…

Things will be back to normal next week as Bailey heads back home. We will certainly miss the wee man!

OK… I’m going to own up… I took the mickey out of Serena for offering free keyrings promoting the gallery to gain followers on her Instagram account. I said she was buying friends! Now I feel guilty and want to help, so thought I would promote her wonderful work on our blog as well!

So, if you wouldn’t mind following serenapughartist on instagram it will hopefully get me off the hook!

Thank you very much.

Busy Morning at SerenArts Gallery

On my morning walk today I saw a mother swan and her six signets grazing on the grass behind the Tithebarn Workshops, so I quickly phoned Serena to go and have a look. The next thing I know I get a rather panicked phone call from her saying they were following her back into the garden of the Workshops! I think word might have got around in the bird world that Serena feeds them every morning!

We now have the family all fed and watered and fast asleep outside the gallery! So please try and keep the noise down if you’re coming the Tithebarn Workshops today!! We don’t want to wake the kids!

Old Paintings of Bradford on Avon

I was going through my older files to free up some hard drive space… as you do!… and I came across a few images that we used on a project for the Bradford on Avon Preservation Trust some years ago…

We were involved in the setting up and printing of the book about the Barton Farm area by Margaret Dobson and Gareth Slater ‘Barton Farm – The Last Thousand Years’. I had no idea about the amount of history there was in the area our Workshop occupies. A very interesting project indeed…

Hope you enjoy looking at some of these great old paintings.

Bradford on Avon Walking Festival

On my morning walk today I came across the Bradford on Avon Walking Festival getting their stall set up in Westbury Gardens…

What a lovely weekend to have a wander around Bradford and the surrounding area. I went to their website and discovered that all their organised walks appear to be fully booked… which is encouraging. You can still spend a lovely day walking around the area though, including the beautiful Tithe Barn and Barton Farm Country Park area. You can also pop in to the Workshops to have a look at what we have to offer down here.
