Welcome to Burning Bush Barn!

'its just so nice to be in a real place of rest. I feel my shoulders drop in here. Thank you!'

When we are able to be generally open, our hours are 1-4pm Thursdays to Sundays. However we are sometimes closed between major events or exhibitions. If you unsure, do please check before setting out on your journey to visit us!
We also have other things taking place at the Barn from time to time so if you would like to be on our mailing list to find out what we have coming up, email us on bbbarn@gmail.com

This blog is laid out so that general information and regular events are shown on the right hand side, and special events and announcements are shown as blog posts on the left hand side. Please check both to see what we are up to!

Coming to the Barn soon....!

Resource Box 2 : 8th- 25th March
Following on from our first resource box, we will be opening our second one on Thursday 8th March. It comes with an invitation from local sculptor John Nicholson...

"Why not  explore, on a small scale, the shaping of space? Three dimensional space. Your hands do it all the time, curving and slicing, assembling meaning in thin air. Translate this and more into something tangible. It could represent something we might recognise. It could express a feeling - exhilaration or peace. It could just be a 3D doodle in silver paper, a mini-sculpture that gives you pleasure."

John has kindly put together a box of resources for us to explore with: wire, card, drink-can aluminium, aluminium foil, Fimo modelling 'clay' and other bits and pieces - 'Blue Peter' stuff! Bring your own too if you like. Cut stuff, shape stuff, stick stuff together and put it on a plinth. Bring your own stuff if you like and tools too. There will however be some tools int he box (PLEASE BE SAFE!)

The barn will be open from Thursdays to Sundays 1-4pm, 8th-25th March. John will be there on 8th.
There will be empty shelves to share and share your creations - or send us photos!

(All items left in the barn will be cleared away after 25th March)

Coffee and Cultivation - Saturday 10th March 10.30 - 12.30
Have you ever wanted feedback on something you have been creating but not been able to have a supportive and constructive opportunity to do this? Have you been asked for your comments on someone else's work but been unsure how to respond? On Saturday 10th March we will be offering a 'Coffee and Cultivation' session at the Barn to give the opportunity for sharing and comment. Amanda has kindly prepared a note to give us some gentle guidance to get started and she and John will help get the ball rolling..... Oh and don't worry, tea will be available too!
