Things are in full swing around the town with the influx of Morris Dancers and down here at the Tithebarn Workshops is no exception!
We hope everyone is enjoying the festivities and a big thank you to all the people who didn’t believe the gloomy forecast and came out to visit us!
We know that Felix and Jackie have been keen to thank everyone for coming along to support the launch of Acoustic Guitar Innovation at the Tithebarn Workshops on Sunday. It was a fantastic turn out with over 100 visitors over the evening …
It was a great evening and we would like to add our thanks to all the people who enjoyed the music, wine and ambiance of the event. Felix had produced some truly stunning guitars that were on show and available to purchase, and they will remain so at the Corner Gallery from now. So, if you weren’t able to get to see the collection due to over crowding… please pop down any time!
A big thank you to everyone involved in putting on the launch evening and we look forward to seeing you all again at the Tithebarn Workshops soon.
We would like to bring your attention to the first Bradford on Avon Day of Morris Dance which will take place on Saturday 20th May at various venues around the town. We are pleased to tell you that one of the event sites is at the Tithe Barn next to us down here at the Workshops…
There are plans for up to 300 dancers and 100 musicians to take part throughout Bradford, so it should be a great spectacle and we’re looking forward to seeing all the festivities.
The day is raising funds for Dorothy House and more information is available via the BOA Morris Day website.
Lisi Ashbridge from The Corner Gallery (Unit 5, Tithebarn Workshops) is taking part in an upcoming exhibition…
Making a Mark is an exhibition celebrating craftsmanship. At the Private View on Saturday 13 May (11 – 5) the Lettering and Commemorative Arts Trust in Snape will have a display and letter carvers Ayako Furuno, Lisi Ashbridge and Thomas Sargeant will demonstrate their craft. The exhibition will be opened at 12 by Sarah Harrison, CEO of the Lettering Arts Trust. Do come – and learn more about the ancient skill of inscribing beautiful letters on stone and slate, and its relevance today.
The title of the exhibition embraces all the artists who show their fine work at The Garden Gallery. If you have not received an invitation and would like one please get in touch. The exhibition will run from 13 May – 8 July on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, 11 – 5, or by arrangement.
As part of the new look Corner Gallery, Felix and Jackie would like to invite you to a bit of a do down at the Tithebarn Workshops on Sunday 14th May from 6pm – 9pm.
Acoustic Guitar Innovations manufacture their beautiful guitars and ukuleles in a low impact way from ethically sourced materials. They are all hand made with love by Felix…
We hope to see as many people as possible for what will be a splendid evening!
Wishing all the customers of the Tithebarn Workshops a very Happy Easter from everyone here.
Have a lovely weekend and see you all soon.
SerenArts Gallery have just taken delivery of a fabulous new selection of new season linen clothing to add to their existing ranges…
A great collection of new designs and colours are available from their shop now, so pop down to the Tithebarn Workshops soon while stocks last!
The sun is out, the shops all have their new stock in, the blossom is just making an appearance, the flowers are in bloom, the Tearooms have got all their tables out and we’re ready for the new season at the Tithebarn Workshops.
We look forward to seeing our regular clientele as well as welcoming many new customers this year.
For those who have followed the Tithebarn Workshops blog over the years you’ll remember our resident ducks, George and Mildred, who come to visit at this time of year…
Last year they failed to put in an appearance, but they’re back today and enjoying a hearty breakfast of bird seed all washed down with water from the dog bowls! Surely this is a sign that summer is well on its way?!
We wanted to bring your attention to an event occurring later this month…
The Tithebarn Workshops are taking part in the Festival which we hope will bring people to Bradford on Avon and showcase the work of the artists at the Workshops and the town.

We hope to see you all down here at some point over the weekend.
