Late Night Christmas Shopping

tithebarn workshops late night christmas shopping

Just a little reminder that the Tithebarn Workshops first late night Christmas shopping evening is this Saturday (26th November – 5pm to 9pm).

The evening will be combined with the official opening of the new Corner Gallery (Unit 5) so they’ll be plenty going on and a great chance to pick up some special Christmas gifts.

We look forward to seeing you then.

‘Small is Beautiful’


We were very excited when the Guardian Newspaper contacted us to say they were running a piece on the Tithebarn Workshops and could we please send some photographs of the shops and garden.

Now please don’t get us wrong… we are thrilled to be included in the article in today’s copy of the Travel supplement, but it does explain the title on the front page ‘Small is Beautiful’!!  Great for the Town though, to be promoted in this way and lets hope that we get lots of extra visitors to the area as a result.

Thank you very much to the Guardian for including our town.

The Corner Gallery

We are very pleased to be able to announce the all new Corner Gallery at the Tithebarn Workshops

Tanya Achilleos Lock, Sotos Achilleos, Jacqueline Byrne, Mary Wilkinson and Lisi Ashbridge now make up the group of artists who occupy this beautifully restyled workshop.  Visitors are able to view and purchase their artwork and have the opportunity to see the artists at work.

The gallery features an eclectic mix of work and is certainly worth a visit for those of you looking for a special Christmas gift with a difference.


Simon & Amanda Relph


It was with great sadness that we learnt of the recent passing of Simon Relph.

Simon and Amanda lived in Barton House next to the Tithebarn Workshops for 5 years before their recent move to Frome. They quickly became great friends and neighbours, and were fantastic supporters of everyone down here at the Workshops.  Every visitor to their home was taken round the shops and, more often than not, encouraged to buy something from one of the units!

We would all like to send our love and warm thoughts to Amanda at this very difficult time and thank her for being ‘one of the gang’!


Christmas Late Night Shopping

It’s that time of year again where we open our doors into the evening and give customers the opportunity to shop at their leisure and enjoy the atmosphere and perhaps a glass of mulled wine!

We hope to see you down at the Tithebarn Workshops on 26th November and 3rd December…



Changes at Unit 5 Tithebarn Workshops

Apologies again for not keeping our posts up to date!

Lots happening at Unit 5 Tithebarn Workshops

1. In addition to Jacqueline Byrne‘s unique artwork, the newly revamped section of her studio now features her husbands stunning, hand made guitars. Felix Byrne (Guitar Innovation) designs and makes unique, innovative, guitars and Eco-leles®. There is no compromise in sound quality and all materials used are sustainable.

2. We were sad to see Pip leave last week, but now welcome a brand new member of the Tithebarn Team, Mary Wilkinson. Mary is a professional painter based in Wiltshire and her work is inspired by the land and sea. Her paintings explore the underlying structure of the land as well as its transient qualities. Her work is based on a strong observation and direct experience of nature to evoke a spirit of place and the ongoing passage of time.


Why not come down to see all the changes and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and do some shopping?!

High or Dry!

There seems to be no happy medium with the good old Avon these days!  This picture was taken by the Packhorse Bridge just behind the Tithebarn Workshops this morning…


Whether they need to open the gates a bit more upstream, the lack of rain, or global warming, we at the Workshops would rather have it dry than high thank you very much!
