New Year… new art form… Serena is working on a series of 3D mixed media artworks and here is the first one, hot off the press.

He’s a dinky little fellow, and comes with the stand.

Serena aims to progress in size as she learns the weights canvases can support – clay sculpting can be heavy, so these things have to be worked out properly. Who knew art could be so technical?!

More to follow soon…

A History of the Tithe Barn

With Easter fast approaching and the start of our busiest time, SerenArts Gallery have produced a free trifold leaflet giving visitors a brief history of the Tithe Barn and surrounding buildings in the Barton Farm Country Park.

We are regularly asked for information about the area and thought this would be a good way to enlighten customers and promote our beautiful locale. Perhaps the next brochure should have the location of public toilets as this is another regularly asked question!

Explore Bradford on Avon

We were just Googling local Bradford on Avon news, looking for a suitable subject to blog about and came across this recently introduced logo promoting the town and featuring on the new Tourist Information website.

We would like to say what a great job the Town Council have done on this updated image and site and lets hope it brings in more visitors to our town.

As always, there were a number of negative comments following the Wiltshire Times reporting of this revamp but the Tithebarn Workshops are fully behind it… ignore the naysayers!

Photographic Restoration

We were recently sent the photo on the left (above) and asked to restore, enhance and put it on to canvas for a client. As you can see from the ‘after’ image we were able to pull back the colour and repair many of the blemishes on the image. It has now been stretched on to box wood frame and is ready for collection. The original was an old poster which had seen better days and we now have a vibrant, fresh canvas print.

If you have any old photos that you would like to rejuvenating why not get in touch for a quote?
