We thought it was about time to get back in the saddle again and start posting on our much under-utilised blog! So here goes…
We were excited to see that Trowbridge has decided to go toe to toe with Frome and is launching its own monthly independent market, which will be held on the 2nd Saturday of the month.
SerenArts have secured a ‘suitcase pitch’ for the first three events and will be taking along Serena’s book ‘A Serene View of Bradford on Avon‘ together with a range of our cards. We hope to see you all there for what promises to be a great day.
Things generally have been a little quiet at the Workshops for the first half of 2019… probably something to do with the rather wet start to the year, but with the recent upturn in temperatures the summer season is beginning to kick in and the visitors are now coming down.
We already have a great selection of goodies in the gallery and new stocks will be arriving over the coming weeks. We will keep you up to date as and when new things arrive… promise!

During morning coffee in the garden we heard a loud crack and discovered a big split appearing down the centre of the trunk. We were literally dialling the landlord’s number when down half of it came, narrowly missing the tea shop window. We then had to rope off the other half and pull it into the garden, away from the Workshops.
A great shame that this magnificent tree couldn’t make it through this latest storm as they have been such a feature of the gardens here for so many years. Let’s just hope that the remaining tree, outside SerenArts Gallery, can stand strong on its own.
It is business as usual down here at the Workshops, but at some point we will have to cut up the debris, so there may be a nice supply of cherry wood for the fires this coming winter.
It’s that time of year again… and the hanging baskets have been planted and are out the front of the gallery. We’ve gone for two this year which is a challenge for us and our shortage of green fingers! Watch this space for growth updates.
