The Magic Bookshop

Peter and John work at the new arrivals desk. Great heaps of books have to be sorted and catagorised and sometimes sent to the dreaded shredder. 

The two friends do their very best to make sure every book gets a new life and that none of the magic is lost.

Step inside this unusual shop, swap a book and maybe even take a little of the magic home with you.

For everyone over 5.

Bring a book to swap!!!

This year we have been delving deep into the earth.

We have been researching and developing a myriad of new work inspired by the natural world.   We have had very inspiring visits from our collaborators and mentors in the U.K Touchstones and John Fox and Sue Gill of Welfare State International and The Dead Good Guides.  We have been getting our hands dirty and growing ideas with scientists, international artists and thinkers, gardeners, growers and families. The seeds are planted for some new and exciting shows which you will be able to see in 2018!
