Manufacturer: CICO Books
Gill Heriz presents another inspirational collection of women's sheds and other small spaces In A Woman’s Huts and Hideaways Gill Heriz presents an inspirational collection of stunning small spaces. Each place has its own story, a reason for being, whether it’s somewhere to escape, to create, to work, or just a place to “be”. By the Waterside, Ivy has built a mud hut near the River Willamett in Portland, Oregon—a place to “inspire and educate and share with her community.” In the Countryside Monica’s Cabin on the Hill is a writing retreat and provides a place for women who need time away from busy lives. A purpose-built shed in an Urban garden serves as studio for illustrator and artist, Martha. Hidden away, in an enchanting wilderness in Suffolk, UK, is Janet and Sue’s Secret Garden. Here, there are three sheds: an old summerhouse full of light; a hide nestled in the bushes for watching the local wildlife; and a renovated wagon used as a base for recording their wildlife observations. From yurts to Airstreams, beach huts to bothies, the huts and hideaways have one thing in common—they are all inspirational spaces created by women, for women.
