The barn and the delightful 14 acre grounds of Tan House Farm in Coleford will be the exhibition space for a select list of talented artists from around the UK in July. ‘Art in the Garden’ is timed to coincide with the Forest of Art annual artists open studios event, which gets bigger and better with each year, and is an excellent opportunity to enjoy this idyllic beauty spot.
Christie and Peter, proprietors of Tan House, are hosting Art in the Garden to help raise funds to support an ambitious programme of art workshops in local schools. International artist Diane Gorvin, who has her studio in the Forest of Dean, is one of the exhibition curators. There will be a diverse range of original work to see and for every work of art sold, a percentage donation goes to the schools workshop programme.
During the week-end 11th – 12th July, I will be there selling mosaic kits to support the initiative as well as exhibiting some of my own work. I will also have a sample of one of our schools packages to show to any interested teachers, PTA members or pupils who might like to consider using the package in their school and will be available to answer any questions etc.

Hope to see you there!
