Thursday 20th April in time for 11.00am at the Tithe Barn
Independent travel to MESSUMS WILTSHIRE for MATERIAL & EARTH
An exhibition of New British Clay Movement at the Great Tithe Barn, Place Farm,
Court Street, TISBURY, Wilts SP3 6LW. 01747 445042. It has struck me how many have heard
of this beautiful 13th century monastic barn brilliantly restored by Messums Wiltshire and the
Fonthill Estate but haven’t made the effort to see it and the wonderful exhibitions it holds.
The gallery is open to the public and free of charge. I am hoping this will encourage you to
join with others to enjoy an inspiring and most interesting day.
We will be in the care of Catherine Milner joint curator of this exhibition.
