Magnetic Brooch / Scarf Pins

We are pleased to tell you that SerenArts Gallery has just taken delivery of some cracking new designs to add to our magnetic brooch collection…

These magnetic brooches are fantastic for easily moving between coats, jackets, scarves, bags and hats. No pin damage and a really strong magnet too.

We have also brought in some additions to our jewellery sets which can be seen at our gallery in the Tithebarn Workshops…

Canal Art

At SerenArts Gallery we’re always looking for new ways to add items to our range of products and services… and canal art is just the latest string to Serena’s bow…

However, always expect the unexpected, as she hasn’t gone for the traditional canal art colour palette with these pitchers. The subtle pastel tones of these beautiful designs, hand painted by Serena, will compliment many a house interior. They are priced at just £18 for the smaller pitcher (approx 17cm high) and £25 for the larger one(approx 22cm high).

We have plans to increase the range of products that Serena will be adding to the canal art collection, so watch this space!

Dementia Friendly Bradford on Avon

It was great to see that word of the new Dementia Friendly BOA booklet was spreading…

We posted recently that SerenArts were delighted to have been commissioned to design and produce this informative booklet for this excellent local group. We picked up the story in the Wiltshire Times and have been seeing it popping up across various websites and social media.

The work this organisation does is vital to the local families and individuals who are affected by this terrible condition so for more information about them why not visit their website.

If you would like more information about our design and printing services, or to discuss a printing project, please feel free to contact us at any time.

The Kingfisher Trail 2021

We mentioned a few weeks ago about some of the upcoming events and goings on in Bradford. The Kingfisher Trail 2021 is a very exciting celebration of art organised in support of Cotswolds National Landscape. This years event is to include Bradford on Avon for the first time.

The Kingfisher Trail is a fantastic arts trail of 21 wonderful kingfisher sculptures which have been decorated by some of our most talented local artists for public display in and around the Cotswolds National Landscape in 2021. Residents and visitors are invited to follow the trail in the summer of 2021, get out into nature and enjoy the outstanding natural beauty of the Cotswolds region. The Kingfisher Trail is designed to bring businesses, arts and local communities together and at the end of the project all of these wonderful sculptures will be auctioned to art lovers and businesses to raise funds for the vital conservation work (for projects that support children and young people in the Cotswolds National Landscape.) of the Cotswolds National Landscape.

Similar to the Minerva’s Owls Sculpture Trail that the local businesses and the Town Council supported in 2018, the Kingfisher Trail will see the town host one of 21 large sculptures of a kingfisher, each decorated by a professional artist.

The 21st sculpture, the ‘Flying Kingfisher’, will move to a new location every fortnight. With Bradford on Avon at the southern end of the Cotswolds, the Trail will now include our portion of the Avon valley too!

Our kingfisher will make two visits to the town, the first in June, and then returning in August.  The trail will be available online and via a smartphone App and we will keep you updated of the locations nearer the time. To celebrate the kingfisher’s arrival, we will also be launching a community art project – keep an eye out on our website and social media @BoATownCouncil for more information on how to get involved!

Barton Farm Country Park Booklet

With the increase in the number of visitors to Bradford on Avon and the Barton Farm Country Park, we thought we would put together a very simple little booklet giving information about this beautiful area. This A6 landscape booklet will be available from this Thursday at SerenArts Gallery

Let’s have a quick game of spot your house!…

I came across this aerial photo of the Barton Farm and surrounding area when I was going through some old files the other day. It was used in a project we worked on for the Preservation Trust, for their book on the history of Barton Farm. Very interesting to see places you know from above and it does show what a beautiful area we have the pleasure to work in

Come and visit us down here soon.
