Amazing Space II last weekend

Dove Meadow

This weekend is the last chance to come down to our special place, The Dove (SAW venue 21) and catch what has been a much visited and dare I say much loved exhibition (the comments books say so, anyway). Here’s a round up of what you will see when you come, and what, in the words of one visitor, is ‘rich and lush’.

Way out Yonder 2

Bron Bradshaw’s ceramics and etchings inspired by our USA trip, leading to….

Treehouse 4

and across the meadow to the Treehouse platform, with laminates of pages from the books as a reminder that one day the books themselves will be housed in a library here.

Here’s how the tree house platform looked this evening; the structure revealing itself a little more each day as the leaves fall.

This weekend we are running an event for all ages: Design (draw) your own treehouse. This is a free drop in workshop, with all materials provided. Hope to see you down here!
