Welcome to Amazing Space III, the third Biennial Arts and Crafts event at Dove Studios. There’s a great deal to see: in the studios there is work by Mike Dodd (pottery), Sandie Roche (handwoven textiles), Diana Milstein (painting, and a moving image painting), and Robin Frood (Mokuhanga prints). Outside, on the meadow, Bronwen Bradshaw, Fiona Hingston, Kathryn John, Sue Palmer, Shannon Leah Watson and Sophie Willoughby display some of the work that resulted from their collaborative residency earlier in the year. And – at last! the Tree House Library is up and running, housing 25 artists’ books that celebrate this small but happening corner of Somerset.
Come to our Open Evening on 28th September, 5 – 8 pm, with a performance in the Tree Circle of Ama Bolton’s collection of poems ‘A Conference of Trees’ and music by Maya Love and Bron Bradshaw. After the performance Paul Stubbs will fire up his pizza oven, and drinks will be available. Parking this evening will be on the adjacent field ‘Wild Lea’; watch out for signs to the entrance in Barton Road. Also, bring a folding chair if you need one for the performance, which takes around 30 – 40 minutes, and a torch to help you find your way home!
Workshops and events: Shannon will be in the Door House on the meadow on Sunday 22nd September and Saturday 5th October with her drop in workshop ‘Can you teach me how to knit?’ The last weekend of SAW will see an ongoing workshop in the meadow: ‘Draw the Trees’, with all materials provided.
We hope to see you here!
