West Coker School’s Discovery Class (Reception and Year 1) took the Weather Station out to explore the village yesterday. No children were squashed in the making of this slightly unusual art workshop.

The Weather Station (Part 1) exhibition is open tomorrow between 11am – 5pm, at the OSR Project Space, and continues on Thursday 9, Friday 10 and Saturday 11 July.

Coffee & Cake


…. and a bit of art. We really enjoyed hosting the West Coker coffee morning on Wednesday, what a great turnout. It was especially lovely to have a conversation with Gladice who, now in her 90’s, used to run dance classes at the Old School Room with her husband. We hope to see you all back at the OSR for more coffee and cake soon.

An egg hopper, a top hat and a tent

preview_tophat Thank you to all of you that made it to the OSR Project Space yesterday, what a great evening. Alongside those that travelled from Plymouth, Exeter, the Blackdown Hills, Gloucestershire, Bristol, Bath, London and lots of places in between, we had one of the largest turn outs from West Coker and the surrounding areas since we opened our doors in 2011. Thank you. You can see some photos of the evening here
