213All this week until Saturday 4th July the Chapel presents In audible: The Baroque Cello Project’ (part II). This is a free event and everyone is welcome.

A collaboration between sound artist Leona Jones, baroque cellist Siôn Dafydd Dawson, and contemporary dancer Laura Moy. An experimental multi-layered site-specific sound installation with performances centred on luthier Adam Winskill’s newly crafted baroque cello and the sounds of its making.

A unique arts project that melds the passion and excitement of highly contemporary performance with the precision and sensuality of Baroque period arts, and explores the complex relationship between sound, movement, silence and stillness.

There will be free performances on Friday 3rd July 12 noon and Saturday 4th July 12 noon and 3pm

…with additional impromptu free performances throughout the week.

7259517182016Thank you to costume designer Tamsin Thorne of IWISHIWASA (clothing accessories for children) for running our ‘Insect Wing Making’ workshop this Saturday at the Chapel. Lots of innovative, creative, industrious activity as you can see from our willing, budding would-be insects…

Firstly some drawing and painting to get ideas flowing, then these willow wing frames were covered, collaged, embellished and painted into new life!

More workshops to come from Tamsin later in the year. Keep in touch or go on our mailing list.

At long last the renovation programme is complete and we are now open downstairs at the Chapel.

Come down to our secret, wild, wonderful garden where the sun can shine all day. From here you can enter into the lower ground floor, our everyday trading space, open Tuesday-Saturday 10am-5pm. Here you’ll find old cabinets of ceramics and jewellery. There are books and magazines not widely seen, all to inspire, delight and nourish. There is also a small, delightful children’s corner.

From our kitchen eat simple, delicious food (breakfast and lunch) made everyday from our well stocked Chapel larder. There is good coffee and wine from a small French family owned vineyard.

…plus free wifi and wheelchair access.

Upstairs in the Chapel is a venue for regular workshops, events and performances and this space is available for hire.

We’ll keep you posted…
