15 Oct Essex’s Most Extraordinary Home introduces new writer and artist scheme
Talliston House & Gardens is unique. Founded by John Trevillian in 1990, the project took the UK’s most ordinary house and over 25 years transformed it into “Britain’s Most Extraordinary Home”.
At its heart, this labyrinth of inspirational locations, times and places is a showcase of the power of our imagination – and the unlocking of the secret that lies within all of us.
The Talliston Writer & Artist in Residence programmes were established to provide resources over the course of one year. It sets out to use Talliston’s interiors to motivate and encourage writers and artists, providing an inspirational space to write, draw, research and create. Under the auspices of Artistic Patron Linda Stratmann, these new people will be joining a community committed to creative excellence.
Their new Talliston Writer-in-Residence is Julie Abrams-Humphries (Jools Abrams). She tells us “Talliston is the extraordinary beyond the extraordinary, Narnia behind the wardrobe, Wonderland down the rabbit hole. On my first visit I was truly amazed and inspired.”
