Open Garden & Secret Craft Fair 7 & 8 June 2014
By Janet, Jun 4 2014 08:54PM
We're opening our garden on Herrick Road in Loughborough, Leicestershire on the 7th and 8th June for the National Gardens Scheme. Another garden is opening with us on the 8th. There’s loads to see and do, and lots of nice surprises.
The Secret Craft Fairs involve giving the ground floor of our home over as public space for the duration. The living room’s been a market place, a site for installations; the kitchen wall becomes a gallery. The area near the washing machine becomes a sales area, the greenhouse becomes a showcase, and the garden walls a gallery.
By the conclusion of our forthcoming event in June we will have shown work by 19 different artists in our home and garden.
Artist Helen Rhodes will be joining us with drawings, prints, ceramics and her new range of notebooks. Artist and illustrator Olivier Marc Thomas Leger will be bringing his meticulously hand drawn menagerie. Ceramic artist Bridget McVey will be with us and throwing pots in the shed on Sunday – come and have a go! Mat Tacey of The Green Woodpecker will be bringing his beautiful bird boxes made from reclaimed materials. Jane Bevan will be bringing her lovely crafts made from items she’s collected in the woods.
We’ve got acoustic music and real live faeries at the bottom of the garden by anon.creatives, and the teeniest tiniest cinema in the world (well, maybe!).
Admission is £2/3 on both days, free for children, with proceeds going to The National Gardens Scheme charities.
