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!

Grown, Gleaned or Garnered...Harvest Breakfast @ the Barn.

On Thursday 19th October, our normal weekly breakfast will instead become our 'Grown, Gleaned, Garnered' Harvest Breakfast, as we have been challenged to have a breakfast where everything at the table has been home grown or gleaned and home processed. We hope this might enable us all to appreciate our food, teach us about 'enough', and connect us to our earth. 
Have you anything you can bring to the table?

'Found Words' workshop

This workshop is now full up but do let us know if you are interested as there may be a further workshop run later in the year....

Coming soon...'Found Words' - a Saturday morning workshop at the Barn


exploring creativity through words
led by John Nicholson and Sarah Passingham

Saturday 9th September: 9.30am - 1.00pm
Burning Bush Barn, Rockland St. Mary

In this workshop dedicated to discovering new ways to describe the obvious, we’ll play hide and seek with words. We’ll see how language can let in the light, bypass logic to turn our imaginations upside down, and find what falls out of the pockets.

All abilities welcome, but be prepared to surprise yourself. There will be writing, reading and sharing. You’ll need an A4 notebook and pen. You can bring a set of highlighters and a small object that will fit into the palm of your hand, if you wish.

We do not wish to exclude anyone from attending for financial reasons but we are recommending a donation of at least £10 where possible. Spaces will be limited to a maximum of 8 people.

If you would like to book a place please email bbbarn@gmail.com  

Last week's Finding Your Feet Workshop.....



 Bathed in light, submerged in sound and rapt in feeling, the sentient body, at once both perceiver and producer, traces the paths of the world’s becoming in the very course of contributing to its ongoing renewal. Here, surely, lies the essence of what it means to dwell. It is, literally to be embarked upon a movement along a way of life

Look what Annie found....

I found first one, then two, then so many more of these pods beneath the oak tree in Hellington churchyard.
I later discovered them to be oak galls, now empty, but had formerly been a growing space for the eggs of parasite wasps.
I formed them into a coracle? Perhaps not....it's name doesn't really matter to me...but there is something of the sea too, seaweed found earlier this summer on West Runton  beach.

'Found' continues at the barn Thurs-Sundays 1-4pm until the end of September.
