Jo Lathwood Homefrom Home 002
Home from Home is a new temporary art space, designed and made by artist Jo Lathwood for a new housing development in Yate, South Gloucestershire. It is both a shelter and a creative space for the community, sited next to the play area at Ladden Garden Village.

Home from Home has been created using repurposed material and timber offcuts from building sites, including the Ladden Garden Village development and the local Whirlpool washing machine factory. The offcuts used to build the artwork were prepared with help from members of Yate Men’s Shed and hundreds of other people at FACTORY (a public event held at the artist’s studio in 2019).

The modular design is influenced by Yate's 20th century evolution into a centre of manufacturing and explores ideas around sustainability. The public art programme for the North Yate New Neighbourhood was secured by South Gloucestershire Council through a s106 planning agreement with Barratt Homes.

Home from Home is hosting a programme of creative events and activities with visiting and local artists for the duration the structure is in situ. This will include family days, workshops, talks, performances and exhibitions. Artists will also work with local people, creating new projects together that are inspired by the area.

The events programme is organised in association with Yate Parish and is managed by independent curator Lucy Badrocke who has secured additional funding from Arts Council England to support it.
