Happy Easter

What a beautiful morning down at the Tithebarn Workshops on this Easter Sunday. We’re all ready and set up at SerenArts Gallery. The bunting, the chairs and table, the stock and even the cherry blossom are all out…

There’s plenty to do and see around Barton Farm Country Park. Take a paddle in the river, feed the ducks, a nice stroll along the canal and maybe check out the exhibition in the West Barn today and tomorrow.

Then relax in our peaceful garden and enjoy a little bit of retail therapy!

We hope to see you all very soon.

The Canal Ware has Arrived…

Well, this is very exciting! We are thrilled to let you have a first look at the beautiful range of hand painted canal ware that has just arrived at SerenArts Gallery.

If you saw our previous post you will have seen that these delightful pieces are all hand painted (no transfers or stencils) by a lady who spent over 15 years in and around Bradford on Avon, on the Kennet and Avon Canal. Once the Caen Hill Locks reopened, the country’s waterways were open for exploring and off she went.

We are really pleased to be able to offer her stunning work from our gallery to locals and visitors alike.

Canal Ware

We are very excited to announce that we will shortly be getting in a range of hand painted canal ware items at SerenArts Gallery.

It is something we have been thinking of doing for a number of years now and we decided that 2022 is the year to add even more colour to our gallery.

Here are just a few examples of the beautiful pieces we have coming in…

They are all hand painted by a lady who spent her first 14 years boating here on the Kennet and Avon Canal. Once the Devizes locks were opened up, she started exploring the stunning waterways of this country, paying her way by painting these wonderful pieces of canal ware.

We will post again to let you know when the range will be available to purchase.

Let’s Go Wassailing

“Here We Come A-wassailing”… This Saturday 29th January between 4pm and 7pm why not come along to the Preservation Trust Wassail Event at the Tithe Barn, Barton Farm Country Park. This annual celebration, held next to the Tithebarn Workshops, is to wish the Hens Orchard good luck for the season ahead in producing a bountiful harvest of fruit. 17th-century English lyric poet Robert Herrick writes in his poem “The Wassail”

Wassail the trees, that they may bear
You many a plum and many a pear:
For more or less fruits they will bring,
As you do give them wassailing.

There will be much Morris Dancing and cider drinking so please do pop down and join in.
