09 Aug The Garden
For those of you that don’t know – we have a beautiful secret. One of Glasonbury’s hidden gems, a little nature haven – our Garden.
Situated at the back of the gallery, it boasts a beautiful array of plants with some lovely solid English oak seating made by local craftsmen, including undercover areas so the space can be enjoyed whatever the weather. It’s a perfect spot to drink a coffee or relax away from the hustle and bustle of the high street.
At the far end you will find our workshop space. A bright modern room in which we host workshops, talks and serve refreshments during our private views. It can be hired by the half day, day or week for a variety of uses. We also serve delicious cold drinks and freshly made bean to cup coffee from our state of the art coffee machine.
Designed for us by local garden designer Heather Turner of Gaia Garden Design, the space has been completely transformed from a rectangle of 2m tall weeds to a stunning modern space with lovely plants and a beauutiful atmosphere. We enlist the help of local gardener Sam Nason to ensure the plants are happy and healthy and to add seasonal colour.
This year we entered it into the annual Glastonbury in Bloom awards and are incredibly proud to have won 1st place in the ‘Best Business’ category as well as being Highly Commended as a Community Space.
The seating was made in Glastonbury by local craftsmen Throne Together Garden Furniture
Our sacred geometry trellis was designed especially for us by our gardener Sam Nason and made by local metal fabricators Wyatt Welding
As part of our opening exhibition ‘Diversity’, artist Melanie Thompson transformed the space with her ‘Viral Texts’ project
It is also the perfect space for events and private views;
And all sorts of other fun and inspiring activities….
