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!

Barn re-opens this Thursday......come and try our Resource Box

The barn will reopen again for general visiting this Thursday 25th January.
We will then be open during our normal times of Thursday to Sundays afternoons  
1-4pm until Sunday 11th February. 
As part of this we will be offering 'Resource Box'. This will be the opportunity to try a new medium, risk free. Take something away and have a go. Let new materials lead you to new places creatively. You never know what you might find out…
Some materials require special preparation so instructions come with the materials.    
Our first Resource Box will offer willow to use. Some guidance to get you started will be left out with the materials during our January/February opening.
You are welcome to bring what you have made back to the Barn and these can be left either on the large, circular table or on the individual shelves along the wall. If you are unable to get back to the barn, you could always email us some images which we can share on the blog……
If you have a box of resources you are happy to share with others, do get in touch and let us have details so that we can plan what other ones might be offered during the year. At the end of each Resource Box period we will clear away all materials and any work created so that we can start afresh - please bear that in mind when leaving work in the barn.
