Last year our sheering shed took on a new look when national arts organisation BighART told it’s story through a dynamic Ten Days on the Island show called The Acoustic Life of Sheds. Our little sheering shed became an unreal creative space with musicians Lucky Oceans and Konrad Park put on 8 performances and drew about 600 people over 2 weekends.
Now we have used the space for some great events including, Photography workshops, pop up playgroups, Christmas partys and last years Bush dance.
Picture a shed, a simple rural farm shed, fire drums burning away outside and a sky full of stars above your head. Inside it’s decked out with a load of fairy lights and hessian sacks, bales of hay, kegs of beer and a wagon of cider, sweet bush dance tunes from the The Bootleggers Dance Band, then there is supper…did we mention we’re putting on a little supper for you guys.
This is the chance to get back your rural roots, let your hair down, get out the country clothes and boots and embrace your inner farmer.
