Who said we couldn’t organise a piss-up in a brewery?

‘Sculpture at the Brewery’ launched on Sunday afternoon (14 April) – Sculpture and ceramics by nine Chiswick 3D artists at the Fuller’s Griffin Brewery, organised by The Chiswick Calendar. The work will remain on show and available to buy in the ‘Tun Room’ inside the brewery shop until Sunday 12 May.

A Tun Mash is used in the brewing process, to mix the ingredients for brewing. The Tun Room is a round room made to look like the inside of a one.

It is used for gathering people together for the introduction at the start of the brewery tours, but Fuller’s Griffin Brewery are keen for more people to discover the place, so for the next month it will be home to our sculpture and ceramics show, the dark wood walls and barrel hoops the perfect setting for the materials used by the artists – clay, wood and steel, and bits and pieces mudlarked from the Thames.

I can now confirm, to any who may have doubted it, that we can organise a piss up in a brewery. Anna Kunst was on hand with her camera.
