The garden has traditionally been a place for creative juices to flow as it is a tranquil area away from the house and you can feel you are back at home with nature and at peace with the world. This is why the garden home office and even the common garden shed has played a role in creating an area where one can work and feel inspired. By their very nature, because these garden offices and sheds are made from wood which in itself is part of the great outdoors, there is a feeling of being back to your roots.
These buildings have been involved with many authors, craftspersons and artists as well as many other amateur pursuits. My wife has a garden shed where she and her friends create greeting cards. Her shed has a few extra windows to give more light into the building and this is something which can be specified on all of 1st Choice’s garden buildings.
There have been many authors who have written in their garden shed and this includes Roald Dahl, the famous children author. It’s felt that this garden shed is so important that the Dahl family have applied to the National Lottery to obtain a grant so this shed can be moved to the Roald Dahl museum. In my view, they should pay for the cost of this shed themselves as they will be charging the public to view it.
A few years ago Shaun Greenhalgh used his garden shed in Bolton to create fake art treasures. His biggest triumph was a creation of a statue which he claimed was 3,300 years old and represented Princess Amarna the daughter of Pharaoh Akhenaten and Queen Nefertiti and sold this for £440,000 to the art gallery in Manchester. How incredible is that a garden shed could play a role in a 3,300-year deceit. For his troubles he had a 4-year stay at one of Her Majesties Sheds – aka – a prison.
The roles which garden sheds play has traditionally been for general storage or as a garden workshop and set in the garden however one gardener in Australia has taken the garden shed one step further by turning it into a work of art. She entered her garden shed for the Warwick Art Prize in Queensland, Australia.
After being inspired in her garden shed Carly Scoufos painted The Accumulation of Time and this featured a number of objects which she had collected over the passing years. Karina Devine, a director at the Warwick Art Gallery, said the painting had created a lot of interest and in her view was because people could relate to their own garden sheds in their gardens. She also said that it was realistic and not just a traditional scene and also that it was the highlight of the Warwick Art Prize. Who would have believed a garden shed would create that sort of interest?
Ms Scoufos’ creation is acrylic on canvas and won 1st prize in the Hanging Team choice from over 130 other entries. Other popular garden-related themes included a garden shed made to look like a miniature cottage, the attaching of a weather vane to a shed and installing a castle shaped wooden cupula to a garden shed roof.
So you can see that the common garden shed has been a fabulous invention and where would the world be without them? Has anyone done anything special in Reading that you know about?
