Sponsor a personalised tile to sit in the roundhouse floor.
The Whistlewood roundhouse will have a beautiful tile floor with bespoke tiles designed by talented local potter, and Whistlewood member, Andy Mason. Each tile will feature a leaf from 16 native tree species, laid directly under the roof lantern, casting light onto this beautiful feature.
Your initials will be engraved into the front of the tile, so you can leave a lasting legacy that you can come and visit for years to come. Please read below for further instructions and the choice of native tree species.
You have the opportunity to make your tiles with Andy at the Whistlewood AGM/Grand Roundhouse Opening on the 1st December between 2 – 5 or at a special tile-making workshop the following day the 2nd. This event runs from 10.30 to 3 with tile making slots at 10.30/11.30/1.00 and 2.00. Please come at these times to receive instruction from Andy. You will also have the opportunity to make coasters in a similar style.
Both events will take place at the new Whistlewood Roundhouse.
Why not buy sponsorship of a tile/s as a gift for a loved one too? If this is a Christmas gift please let us know and we will produce a certificate that you can pass to the recipient. Please ensure that you fill in the full postal address that you want this certificate to go to. Then indicate the initials of your recipient on the comments section at the Checkout as per the instructions below. Last orders for Christmas will be 18 December.
