Creative Creatures At Whirlow Hall Farm

19th April 2016

Creatures from Whirlow Hall Farm have been getting creative producing unique animal artwork to be showcased at an exclusive art exhibition at The Workstation, on Thursday 28th April, 6.

00pm 8.30pm. The animal artwork produced by a range of animals including guinea pigs and ducks will all go under the hammer, as well as Whirlow Hall Farm experiences. The money raised for the charity will fund essential educational projects for children and young people, particularly from disadvantaged urban backgrounds. Artwork has been kindly -donated by the farm's resident artists including guinea pig (Harry Pretzel), duck (Gaga), chicken (Rihena) and piglet (Petra). The Whirlow Experiences available to bid on include tours of the vineyard, a private lambing experience and a chocolate making workshop. Nick Riddle of ELR will be the auctioneer for the evening. Laura Bruce, Corporate Fundraiser said -We're looking forward to witnessing the bidding process and seeing people take home with them the artwork and fantastic Whirlow experiences for all the family. This event is a fun initiative to highlight to a wider audience the work we carry out at Whirlow and raise the profile of the charity in the Sheffield community. Mike Easdown, a local sheffield artist and illustrator will also be donating artwork to the raffle as well as giving a presentation about the inspirations behind his work. The event is being sponsored by Benchmark Recruit, and the Trust has received generous support from Humbledinger and Taylor Bracewell. Any money raised will help enable 10,000 children and young people, many of them from disadvantaged backgrounds and the inner city, to visit the farm in 2016 and benefit from its unique environmental and educational experience. Tickets cost £10 and include a glass of wine and nibbles. To book your tickets please contact
