scenic painting

so much fun being part of the layering process, that turns these amazing carved polystyrene pieces
into entrance arches, that will look aged and weather beaten and like they have been guarding the entrance to the Park for hundreds of years.

painting /revamping

In a green field on a working farm, a group of creative eclectic people gather and create a vision that is 7 years on "the Park". Hand painted signage, seating that was once styled as tea chests turn into 70s rainbow inspired boxes and beach shack distressed bar seats.Giant postcards are painted under the striped tent that will be the silent disco, we work in the hot sun and shade of tents, and the field is a buzz with machinery, people, building, riggers.

       curtains that were in the house overdyed and lining the studio space ceiling

So I searched on google maps, searched on my phone, wrote some key direction notes, but really had no idea where I was heading! Yes I did head down some tight narrow country lanes, some long distance reversing to find a space when I met another car, there was a moment when I thought I wasn't going to find this place. In the end I relented a quick phone call and the programming of the "sat nav" I didnt know was there!
I was so close, but i wouldnt have found it.....


This place is already an incredible treasure.

 At the moment it is huge spaces of layered wallpaper and history. There's a huge attic space as big as a house where the servants slept/lived, and you stop and think how challenging it would have been for them, its lined with wood panelling which they will use elsewhere. The house is vast rooms, walls that can be pulled down, have been, creating bigger more usable spaces. Its raw and beautiful and inspiring and amazing. Owned by visionary people that have seen the treasure and potential and are ready for the journey.


So just down the road is an outlet store complex...  I know! the first thought is .....mall like trawling through hideous soul-less store after store...and hoping it's worth the endurance event to find that bargain!

  It was nothing like that, gorgeous stone buildings, winding staircases, shops melding from one to the other.  It wasn't all must have, but look at these treasures !  I need a container!
