Well, we all knew it was coming and… we’re sorry to say… that the doors of SerenArts Gallery are now closed again until Boris says otherwise.
As before, we are allowed to continue with our printing and photocopying side of the business, but to ensure both your safety and ours, this is by prior appointment (Contact: email@example.com or 0758 102 1135). Contact us at any time to discuss your requirements or make an appointment.
Serena’s artwork, book and cards are also available online from her website… serenarts.com
You can also purchase our jewellery and accessories via this very website… just go to the online shop using the menu above.
We will hopefully be able to reopen in the not too distant future and would, once again, like to say a big thank you to all the fantastic local people for their continued support during difficult time.
Please stay safe and see you soon.
Well… 2020 was certainly a bumpy ride! But we’re still here and ready for the renewed challenges that 2021 will bring. We will hopefully be updating our online shop over the coming weeks as new years stock arrives, so please come back soon to see the new goodies!
We did have a little scare over the festive period when the River decided to get rather full again…
We got away with this one and hope that anyone hit by it this time is now all dried out and safe.
This little fella turned up recently at the Tithebarn Workshops. We’ve called him Simon as he seems to be hybrid of a rat and a squirrel… Simon Rat’ll! He doesn’t seem to have any tail envy despite there being at least another 4 very fuzzy specimens that frequent the garden.
Just a quick message to anyone looking for that last minute gift… all the units at the Tithebarn Workshops are open today and tomorrow… we hope to see you soon and Merry Christmas to all.
After what can best be described as an Annus horribilis, we at SerenArts would just like to say a huge thank you and a very Merry Christmas to all of our lovely customers. We have been overwhelmed by the support from the people of this great town and thanks to their continued backing, we are able to look forward to 2021 and what the new year will bring.
We hope you all have a fantastic festive period and are able to see some of your loved ones. We look forward to seeing you all in the new year.
THANK YOU ~ MERRY CHRISTMAS ~ HAPPY NEW YEAR
From Mike & Serena
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.
