A Successful Day

A big thank you to everyone who joined us down at the Bradford on Avon Street Market in Westbury Gardens yesterday…

The weather helped to turn this into a very successful day for the Tithebarn Workshops and we got to meet plenty of existing and prospective customers.  We managed to dish out over 2 dozen of Mel’s delicious scones, which went down extremely well!

We were even right next to the band that struck up in the afternoon, adding to the great atmosphere in the gardens.

We do hope to see many of the new faces down here at the Workshops soon and look forward to next years event.

Losing our Cherries!

Oh… come on… grow up!!

There’s a huge crop of cherries on the trees down at the Tithebarn Workshops, but they’re going fast thanks to the birds in the garden.  Slightly sour again this year but great if you like making preserves!

Also running out fast are the cherry necklace sets at SerenArts Gallery (note the not so subtle marketing link!!)…

Why not pop down to the Workshops soon for a chance to see both!

George & Mildred return!

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?!

Doris does some damage…

While I was sunning myself in Gran Canaria storm Doris was doing her worst in the garden at the Tithebarn Workshops.  Luckily it was only one of the larger branches of our glorious cherry trees and it didn’t fall towards the galleries, so things could have been a lot worse…

On the plus side, all the spring flowers are now coming into bloom and the garden is starting to look it’s best again.

We hope to see you all down here soon.

Happy New Year

We would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year and hope you had a good Christmas.  It’s all over again for another year and we’re back at it down at the Tithebarn Workshops and there can’t be anybody more pleased than this little fella….
