Meet and Greet

Too doing her meet and greet at the Tithebarn Workshops

No… Mary at Stone Paper Scissors hasn’t started doing a new range of draft excluders… this is Roo doing her meet and greet for customers at the Tithebarn Workshops.

With the weather improving again and the bank holiday coming up this Monday, things are picking up down here, so why not pop down for a cream tea in our beautiful gardens and a spot of retail therapy?

Doggy Paddle!

I was just dropping off some more Tithebarn Workshop leaflets at the Bradford on Avon Tourist Information Centre this morning when I came across this event organised by local pet shop and cafe ‘Doghouse‘. It brings a whole new meaning to ‘the doggy paddle’! I have to say that the dogs seemed to have much better balance than some of the owners!

Always great to see events that bring people to the town and a big congratulations to the Doghouse for this innovative idea.

Anthony Pates – Artist

We were very sad to hear of the passing of local artist Anthony Pates recently. We have had the pleasure of doing some printing work for Anthony over the years, reproducing some of his incredible artwork as prints, cards and postcards. He was an absolute gentleman and created the most exquisite, timeless work.

Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this difficult time.

Here are a few examples of Anthony’s extraordinary work…

Busy Weekend

SerenArts had a very busy time over the weekend with back to back markets…

Saturday 13th July – Trowbridge Weavers Market

Trowbridge Weavers Market

Saturday saw the first Trowbridge Weavers Market which is to run on the second Saturday of every month and occupies the centre of Trowbridge. Bringing together makers from all spheres and incorporating music and street food. We opted for a suitcase pitch at the first event and took along our book ‘A Serene View of Bradford on Avon‘ and a collection of cards from the book. We have also booked for the August and September dates and hope to see everyone come along to this excellent event.

Sunday 14th July – Frome Art Car Boot Sale

Frome Art Car Boot Sale

Sunday, and it was off to Somerset for a return to the annual Frome Art Car Boot Sale organised by Black Swan Arts and held in the car park outside the Cheese and Grain. This event does exactly what the name suggests… offering visitors an opportunity to obtain art, direct from the artists, at a reasonable price. The weather was fantastic and day was a great success.

A busy but rewarding weekend and its back to the gallery today after a much needed day off!

Red Nose Day!

It’s that time of year again when the trees are loaded with cherries and the wildlife fill their boots!

Even though we lost one of our beautiful cherry trees in the storms this year there is still plenty to plunder on the one outside our gallery. The birds do look like they’re auditioning for the next Comic Relief Red Nose Day though!

If you’re in town for the annual Holy Trinity Church Bradford on Avon Street Market, why not pop along to the Tithebarn Workshops for a cup of tea in our beautiful gardens and enjoy a bit of retail therapy in the shops?
