Hedgehammer! Wednesday’s listings – Visual Artworks

With the first three auctions – Objects of Wearable Beauty, Wordcraft and Creation and Experiences – having raised over £1,500 over the last three nights, we come to the last Hedgehammer auction day! Yes, the gavel of the Hedge is poised again to hammer out the fourth Hedgespoken auction tonight at 7.30pm (GMT)

Here is what’s up for your delectation and delight this evening – we have a veritable eye-feast of VISUAL ARTWORKS. We’ve some truly amazing and original work on offer, as you’ll see, so please spread the word far and wide.

Each listing has a link to the page where you’ll be able to bid on the item once the auction has started… You’ll know it has started, because the comments will be open for you to make your bids… We’ll be prompt, though, so refresh your pages at 7.30pm and you’ll be in line for some old-school auction excitement!

For all the details of how to bid, how to pay, and so on, visit the ‘How to…’ guide here (this’ll open in a new window or tab – you might want to keep it open while the auctions are running…) The full listing for all the auctions (so far – there are still a few last-minute offerings coming in…) can be found here.

Just as a suggestion, you might want to keep tabs or windows open for all the items you’re interested in, so that you can flick between them, refreshing frequently, so that you don’t miss out… And remember, this is all in aid of bolstering the Hedgespoken coffers so that we can run some of the workshops and events that we’ve written about here.

So, without further ado, here are today’s extraordinary items for your perusal and coveting. See you in the auction room at 7.30pm (GMT)!
