Well, we had a whole raft of wood related puns lined up for why the kids park was closed behind us here at the Tithebarn Workshops. And now, this morning, a large Council truck load of wood chips arrived to sort the problem out!
Apparently, there was not enough coverage of bark should anyone fall off the swings etc. As you can imagine there’s been quite a bit of… ‘It wasn’t like that it my day’ being muttered around here!
Anyway, things are all good again and we won’t be losing any business now due to the closure… see you soon.
We would just like to bring your attention to this weekend’s Summer Floating Market taking place on the Kennet & Avon Canal near us here at the Tithebarn Workshops, on Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th July…
Now in its second year the Kennet and Avon Canal Floating Market is an event not to be missed. Boats and stalls selling goods made aboard from handicrafts to food to brass and woodwork. Entertainment from the canal community’s wide range of talented musicians and bands. Facepainting and workshops in juggling, ropework and shantys. Learn to play the spoons! Visit the Floating Salon for a pamper.
The market is open from 10am to 6pm both days and we hope to see everybody down in the area for a great time.
A big thank you to everyone who joined us down at the Bradford on Avon Street Market in Westbury Gardens yesterday…
A bit of folk for the Street Market folks!

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.
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!
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.
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!
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?!
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.
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….
Have you quite finished taking photos?!…
We hope to see everyone soon and to look forward an exciting 2017.
