The Brede Valley in Print

The Oast was converted into a holiday home nearly 4 years now and it has taken us that long to find the perfect artworks to adorn the walls. We have been looking for art that suits the style of the Oast, that is of our local landscape, and we also had dreams of commissioning some works that was of our very own Hare Farm. 

Social media may be painful in some ways, but in others it is a godsend. Not least in connecting local businesses that you would otherwise not come across. It was through making connections, that I came across Becky and Gary of Float Press. Living and working just a couple miles down the Brede Valley from us, lo and behold we had stumbled across a perfect solution (through Facebook!). Float Press love the Brede Valley, create limited edition prints of the Brede Valley and also undertake commissions. Not only that, the challenge of working with large curved walls and creating something stunning and large on the curved walls, was taken up with open arms. 

So after a huge amount of creativity and dedication, we are so pleased to see the finished works in place, including some bespoke commissioned work of our very own Hare Farm landscape. 

It's been a wonderful project to work on, and is indeed an organic one, with more to follow. The large, curved print for the large curved wall is still to come, and Float Press have the skills to enable the digital woodcuttings to be applied to tea towels, cushions, lamp shades...and then there are greeting cards, postcards and more....so many possibilities, but one step at a time.

Firstly and importantly, how chuffed we are to have found such a talented and down to earth couple, who live just a couple of miles away and share our passion for the Brede Valley landscape. Float Press have created something very special that we hope our future guests enjoy too, when staying here on the farm. 

Here's a sneak peak at some of the bespoke Hare Farm prints. Excuse the poor photo which doesn't do the prints justice at all - nothing beats seeing them in the flesh, and we will post better images of all the works soon...
