Part of 'The Good Life' with artists Tyman and Rushton

About

Before being located in a forest at Eskdale, Cumbria, Tyman and Rushton's Thoreau cabin is to be raised in the workshop at Lanternhouse. You are invited to join the artists there for a cabin warming, to hear more about the project and for Hasty pudding, as served to visitors by Thoreau. As part of our commission The Good Life, artists Tyman and Rushton have produced a copy of the cabin in which Henry David Thoreau lived in the ‘wilderness' in 1845 in the woods at Walden Pond, Massachusetts. Thoreau was an early Western proponent of the Good Life. His self-imposed relocation to a ‘cabin in the woods' in the US in the 1840's was a rejection of the newly emerging technologically driven capitalist society. This event is at our workshop: Low Mill Business Park West End Lane Ulverston LA12 9EE
