Midweek Match

We had a cracking night out yesterday as guests of the President of Larkhall Athletic FC, Steve Hall, to watch their midweek game against relegation threatened Mangotsfield United. The only negative was the result with the Larks going down 0-2 to the Mangos. It was a valiant effort by a depleted Larkhall team that was reduced to 10 men after a harsh refereeing decision. However, the welcome and hospitality shown by the club was amazing and we had a thoroughly good evening at what has to be the most picturesque football ground I have ever been to.

As match sponsors our advert was in the program, along with a really nice welcome message:
“Joining Steve will be Mike Pugh and his wife Serena from SerenArts. SerenArts also sponsor Larkhall, having both a pitch side advertising board and a match day programme advert. Mike and Serena run SerenArts Gallery and gift shop next to the Tithe Barn in Bradford on Avon. In addition, Mike also offers design, printing and computer services”.

If you look very closely you can see our hoarding on the far side of this goal mouth action.

Good luck to the Larks for the remainder of the season and thank you again for a great evening.

Website Update

It’s that time of year when you have a bit more time to get things done, so we have been revamping the Tithebarn Workshops website ready for the coming year…

SerenArts Book Design

serenarts book design and printing

I was going back through some of our earlier posts and came across one I did after the first week of Lockdown 1. We were promoting our book design and printing services to those of you who now had the time to write that book you’d always talked about. After all the subsequent incarcerations you should be finished by now and looking to get yourself published!

Here at SerenArts we can take your draft book and guide you through all the stages to getting to publication and welcome your active input at every stage. For example, we have just been commissioned to design a book of watercolour paintings taken from a large collection of sketch books. The sketches are by a lady who recently passed away and her son wants her paintings to be shared with family, friends and the public.

To discuss your project with us and find out the costs involved, why not give us a call (01225 868644) / email, or pop down to the Tithebarn Workshops to visit our gallery.

Website Expansion

We have actually started one of our New Years projects a little early and have begun to add all our printing and design services to the main SerenArts Gallery website / blog…

So whether it is a book printing job or simply a photocopy you are looking for, you will be able to find it all in one place.

Please come back again soon to see what has been added.

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!

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.
