Well it was all happening down at Barton Farm this morning…
An early start to wake up Jack and then everyone headed off down into town for more fun and festivities at the Green Man Festival. Why not pop in and visit Jackie and Karen’s stall in Westbury Gardens? There will be more going on around the Tithebarn Workshops this afternoon with dancing and music.
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 have just been told that the brochures for this years Cloth Road Arts Week have now been printed and are ready to be picked up tomorrow. We will have them available at SerenArts Gallery from Thursday.
We’ve also been personalising the promotional posters for down here at the Tithebarn Workshops…
We are all looking forward to welcoming lots of people to this beautiful corner of Bradford on Avon.
Not much chance of spotting the kingfishers that regularly visit the Barton Bridge area this morning…
Some much needed tree chopping over at the Rowing Club has meant frequent trips through the ford and over the bridge for this tractor and trailer. It always looks a bit odd seeing vehicles on Barton Bridge!
Yes… that is ice you can see forming on the canal! A very chilly start to the day on my morning walk. It’s going to be a ‘winter closed door policy’ at the gallery today!
I also noticed that the canal towpath is going to be closed from Bradford to Avoncliff for an extended period. The water level is going to be dropped by 100mm and repairs undertaken on the embankment. On the plus side, the mud on the river walk is frozen solid so you won’t get muddy going that way!
I was going back through some of our earlier posts and came across one I did after the first week of Lockdown 1. We were promoting our book design and printing services to those of you who now had the time to write that book you’d always talked about. After all the subsequent incarcerations you should be finished by now and looking to get yourself published!
Here at SerenArts we can take your draft book and guide you through all the stages to getting to publication and welcome your active input at every stage. For example, we have just been commissioned to design a book of watercolour paintings taken from a large collection of sketch books. The sketches are by a lady who recently passed away and her son wants her paintings to be shared with family, friends and the public.
To discuss your project with us and find out the costs involved, why not give us a call (01225 868644) / email, or pop down to the Tithebarn Workshops to visit our gallery.
