tangentfield is a design and make practice.
We work with individuals and community groups, specialists and novices, to design and make beautiful temporary or permanent constructions.
We often use performance as part of our method.
And reclaimed or found materials as our resource.
We experiment with ‘process’ and celebrate ‘product’.
Each event or project we do provides a platform for people to come together and share ideas, enjoy teamwork and challenge the limits of pre-conception and expectation……This website is a meeting place for our collaborators, projects, sites and inspiration.Please feel free to join us.

Participants include community groups, specialist designers and makers, volunteers, university students, children and members of the public.
tangentfield devise and coordinate participatory consultations. These may be through workshop sessions with stakeholders of all ages. We use modelmaking, performance, outdoor workshop and light construction activities.
A small cluster of buildings overlooking a valley on the border of Tuscany and Umbria in Italy. Slowly but surely; through design and build workshops, playscapes and seasons of self build, accompanied by great food and wonderful stories, Rimondato has grown into a beautiful creative retreat.
