Are you part of our membership group, the Friends of Kettle's Yard? If so, join us on this exciting one day trip to Buckinghamshire on 29 August. ✨ We will be heading to the @mk_gallery in Milton Keynes to see their new exhibition ‘Memphis: Plastic Field’, before heading for a private tour of @turn_end_trust in Haddenham, a Grade II* listed 1960s house and garden designed by the architect Peter Aldington. Peter, who still lives in the house with his wife Margaret, will be our guide for this special Friends’ visit. Find out more and book your ticket by visiting or click the 'What's On' link in our bio. If you would like to join this event and are not currently a Friend of Kettle's Yard, you can join at 📸: Turn End. Photo: Richard Bryant/Arcaid.

Have you spotted our Hoya plant upstairs in the House? This beautiful plant with waxy leaves climbs up the wall in the upper extension, near the library. 🌿 Plants are extremely important to Kettle's Yard and help contribute to the overall sense of balance and harmony in the House as they sit amongst art works, natural forms, furniture and everyday objects. 💕

For #UNTITLED, artist Phoebe Boswell has made three new large scale drawings that are inspired by an encounter she had with a group of fishermen on the island of Zanzibar. This encounter prompted her to imagine a narrative in which the men had returned from a timeless journey in search of a new place. In this series of drawings, Boswell describes the imagined place they may have found. The figures in these works face away, looking out towards this imagined place, or another possible future. See the three drawings by Phoebe Boswell in #UNTITLED until 3 October. Book online via the link in our bio or we are accepting walk-ins to visit the exhibition. 📷: Stephen White This exhibition is a new iteration of UNTITLED: art on the conditions of our time, originally produced by New Art Exchange, Nottingham in 2017, and curated by Paul Goodwin and Loren Hansi Gordon. At Kettle’s Yard it is curated by Paul Goodwin and Guy Haywood. @new_art_exchange

Studio Sundays are back this August 2021! 🎨🎉 This year we'll be running them slightly differently and we will be having a drop in session outdoors. Join us on 1st, 15th and 29th August to get creative in St Peter's Churchyard. At this family workshop you will pick up a family activity pack which you can either do outside at Kettle's Yard with our learning team and artists, or you can take it home with you. This activity is free and for families with children of all ages. Activities are for all but most suitable for children between 3 and 11 years.
