A Woman's Huts and Hideaways
Gill Heriz presents another inspirational collection of women's sheds and other small spaces
In A Woman's Huts and Hideaways, 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". A bespoke shed in an Urban backyard, surrounded by pots of plants and flowers, serves as an isle of peace for its owner, Wendy. By the Waterside, Mary has built a beach hut on the coast, perched on stilts with a view out to the sea. Hidden away, in an enchanting wilderness in Norfolk, 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. In Portland, Oregon, Polly uses her inland boathouse as a Creative space for writing. 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.
Beautifully illustrated with photography by Nicolette Hallett, A Woman's Huts and Hideaways takes the "she sheds" movement one step further, into all sorts of outdoor buildings and spaces.
