Only three more sleeps and we’re able to reopen our gallery to all you lovely people…
Everything is ready to welcome our customers back and our shelves are stacked with great Christmas pressie ideas. There is a great choice of gifts available from all the units at the Tithebarn Workshops.
A huge thank you to everyone who has continued to support SerenArts Gallery during Lockdown 2:0 and we very much look forward to seeing you all again very soon.
We are still taking orders for printing of Christmas cards for artists and photographers who would like their work turned into a personal, special card to send out this year.
This year it has again been our pleasure to produce the 2020 Christmas card for the Bradford on Avon Preservation Trust…
This stunning image was taken by local photographer Andrew Eberlin and features on an A5 card.
During this current lockdown we are constantly looking for ways for our customers to gain access to our products and services.
This is our latest venture… Wiltshire’s Virtual Grotto.
The clever people who have set up this selling space have already got over 7000 members and over 300 stalls selling a range of gifts suitable for Christmas pressies. This not only gives customers a chance to buy locally while many shops have to remain shut, but also supports local small businesses and producers during these very difficult times.
We have added a selection of our goodies to the Grotto and will be adding more items soon.
Thank you to Kirsty and Clare for your excellent and innovative idea… good luck!
With just over a week to go until the end of ‘Lockdown 2:0’ we thought we would give you a little update on how things are going at SerenArts Gallery.
Like many small businesses, this enforced closure could not have come at a worse time of year, hitting Christmas sales from our gallery very hard. Although we have transferred the bulk of our shop items into our online shop and made Serena’s artwork available on her website, there is no doubt the coming months will be a challenge. I made the mistake of calculating the percentage of annual retail sales that we would expect in November… not a good idea!
However… what these lockdowns have done is galvanise local people into looking nearer to home and supporting local firms in these difficult times. We have noticed a marked increase in ‘Bradfordian’ customers and enquiries, which is great for the local economy (and ours!). Hopefully, when we reopen after this current closure, people won’t have spent all their pennies with Amazon and we will see a lovely last minute rush for pressies!
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our existing and new printing customers for their fantastic support during this period. We have had a large number of Christmas printing orders and continue to offer our ‘essential’ photocopying service.
Thank you very much and stay safe.
Mike & Serena
Due to the current Government directive, we are still unable to have our lovely gallery open, so here is an opportunity to purchase a set of 8 of Serena’s unique Glass Art Christmas Cards.
Featuring festive scenes each card is hand painted on a glass microscope slide and mounted on a card measuring approximately 185mm x 75mm. Every card comes cellophane wrapped and with a quality envelope.
The above price includes postage and packing, or local Bradford on Avon delivery.
The orders for Christmas card printing are coming in thick and fast at SerenArts. One of our regular clients, Sue Bannister, who always produces glorious felt artwork every year for her cards has excelled herself again this year…
We have scanned in her work and made up the cards as a 5″ x 7″ greeting card with a quality 130gsm envelope.
If you would like more information about turning your artwork into Christmas cards, please contact us at any time.
Due to popular demand, we have been asked to add our range of Bradford on Avon Christmas Cards to our online shop.
These festive cards come as a set of 6 (one of each design above) and come bound together in a paper wrap. The message ‘Seasons Greetings’ is printed on the front of each card.
All the images are from photographic artworks by Serena Pugh, printed on quality 350gsm card and come with 130gsm envelopes. Dimensions: 5″ x 7″ (when folded).
In our online shop you will find two payment options:
Click and Collect for £5.00
First Class Postage for £7.50
If you would like any further information please contact us at any time.
