Making things beautiful and making beautiful things

Believe it or not, it’s been five months since Tina Bettison relinquished her role as a presenter on Girls Around Town to open her new studio and gallery in Southwell – goodness, how time flies!

But she didn’t take much persuading to return to Radio Newark for next weekend’s show, when she’ll be talking about how a series of workshops, exhibitions and demonstrations has already put BELOVED@THEBARN firmly on the map with customers and fellow creatives alike.

Tina will be joining June on Sunday to explain how what she calls ‘this wee corner of the world’ combines contemporary art, homewares with history and creative space. And how it was born from love and from her love of making beautiful things and making things beautiful…

There’ll be news too of some of the activities and events in store at The Barn for spring and summer, including details of the Southwell Studios Trail, part of the Open Studios Notts programme in May and June.

Tune in on 107.8fm or on DAB digital radio or listen online from 10am to 12 noon on Sunday to find out why, in Tina’s own words, ‘BELOVED@THEBARN isn’t just a place, it’s a community’…
