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….

Have you quite finished taking photos?!…

We hope to see everyone soon and to look forward an exciting 2017.

From left to right we have Jacqueline Byrne, Lisi Ashbridge, Mary Wilkinson, Sotos Achilleos and Tanya Achilleos Lock, who make up the Corner Gallery team.  Good luck to all of you in your newly opened gallery.

Don’t forget that tomorrow night is the second of our late night Christmas shopping evenings (3rd December).  We hope to see you all down here for some more festive cheer!

Thank You!

Just a quick thank you to all those of you who were able to make it down for the Tithebarn Workshops late night Christmas shopping yesterday evening…

A good night was had by all and if you weren’t able to make it, hopefully you can take advantage of next Saturday (3rd December) for our second instalment!

Many thanks to all involved!

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.

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.
