Tamara Drewe: sheds on screen

The film of Posy Simmonds's marvellous book Tamara Drewe was screened at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year and as those of you who have read it will know, a garden office plays a key part in the film, owned by writer Nicholas Hardiment (played by Roger Allam - the film also stars Gemma Arterton, Dominic Cooper and Tamsin Grieg). Shedworking was honoured to help with some of the research for Hardiment's garden office about which Production Designer Alan Macdonald commented: "I felt that Nicholas Hardiment’s shed had to be the one place where he was able to express his personality. And ultimately it’s the embodiment of the mind of a fifteen‐year‐old boy, who’s never grown up. He’s a man who’s never grown up, a mummy’s boy.” Look out for it in a cinema near you.
