Bushey Museum, Bushey
Relocation of Art studio

This project conceived by the curators of Bushey Museum and funded by a Heritage lottery grant involved the relocation of a Victorian Artist studio.

The Studio had stood for over 120 years on a plot in Glencoe Rd in Bushey. The Prefabricated structure in the style of the Tin tabernacles of the time represents the only remaining working studio from the Period. There were reportedly dozens of similar studios clustered around the famous Herkomer School of Art in 19th century Bushey.

The building has been carefully dismantled, recorded, transported and reconstructed on a vacant site to the Rear of Bushey Museum and Art Gallery in Rudolph Rd in Bushey. The building now acts as a working exhibit, fusing the artistic heritage of the area with the needs of local artists of today who will continue to practice teach and learn in the building.
