Artists talk about their sheds at Latitude Festival 

We asked a few of the artists we’re working with on The Simple Things in Life to talk about their creations and tell us a bit about how they enjoyed Latitude. Hear what Chris Branch of The London Snorkelling Team, Lewis Gibson and Barnaby Stone had to say here:

Chris Branch of The London Snorkelling Team talks about their shedThe 2011 Annual Science Demonstration, and Space Fête.  

Lewis Gibson shows us around his shed, Lost in Words.  

Barnaby Stone gives us an insight into his shed, Yes, but it’s complicated. 

"***** Each shed is a treat in itself: cumulatively, they foster something of the wonderment that floats through childhood days of first discoveries."
