Tetbury to become a Window Wanderland for three nights this February
Do you fancy trying something new? We are excited to be starting a creative community project away from the Shed and in the streets of Tetbury. With your help we will transform our town into a spectacular outdoor gallery for all to enjoy from 6 – 8pm on 25 – 27th February. A perfect, Covid-friendly event to brighten up the deepest, darkest winter evenings, produced by the Goods Shed Arts Centre with the help of many local community groups and organisations and hopefully YOU.
Taking part as a Windowmaker is free, for the benefit of the community and everyone is welcome. You can make a display as simple or as complicated as you like in the windows of your flat, house, business, car, campervan – or anywhere it can be seen from the street! Our optional theme will be Nature – Our Planet. Have a look at the outside of your windows after dark. What are they itching to show? Perhaps something exotic from the Amazon or local to your garden, from insects, flowers and fish to stars, space and the universe. Hang your display in your window and light it from behind, throw open your curtains and let it glow. When you register your windows at www.windowwanderland.com/event/tetbury-2022 , we will send you a how-to pack – it’s very easy – and put your dot on a trail map to guide people around the town to enjoy every bit of the spectacle. We will have some materials to give away too and some supportive workshops at the Shed. Check below for details.
Window Wanderlands have become a popular event around the UK. They are not competitive ….. but we hear Nailsworth is holding its first one in March. Wotton Under Edge is on its third and they’ve been on TV! Keep an eye on our website and newsletters, sign up as soon as you decide to do it and enjoy some inspiration for designs and details of how to create your masterpiece.
Tetbury Library will be supporting the event with Sophie transforming its street-facing windows. More inspiration can be found at www.windowwanderland.com/gallery and popping up in a few windows about town as we prepare our displays.
Workshops are offered at the Goods Shed to help get things started and limited materials are available to buy to help people to transform the windows in their own homes.
The event has been made possible thanks to support from Tetbury Goods Shed, Tetbury Lions and other generous organisations in the town.
How can I find out more?
Join one of our workshops down at the Goods Shed – entry is free and we will have a limited supply of materials for sale to help get you started
