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 mountain huts, these 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.
