On 30th October the doors opened to St Anne’s House for a free public house-warming event. Autumn Fete was an event to bring people together and invite them into the new community and creative hub.

“St Anne’s House is a space that is open to all to come together – This Autumn fete is an invitation to communities, especially of St Anne’s, to come and see what we are up to and for them to get involved.” – Jack Gibbon, Bricks Director

The day included:

  • Join artists Elise Wooten and Ellen Pye in experimenting with vegetable printing and creating a colourful collaborative artwork for St Anne’s House. Have a go at printing your own creations to take home too! 
  • Come and join Coven Oven in some ye olde fashioned Samhain (Halloween) traditions – eat some toffee apples, carve yourself a turnip lantern, and gaze into your future with some poured wax divination.
  • Get involved in a collaborative and creative session with tenant collective Co-Bristol
  • Get creative with Paint, Pens and Ply run by Bristol artist and SAH tenant Elliot Coffin
  • Bring your clothes back from the dead! A Spooky Mending Circle with local artist and St Anne’s Tenant Dawn Giles. Bring things that need mending, and any scrap fabrics or old clothes to upcycle.
