forthcoming events

The 2023 Witherslack Artists and Makers exhibition will be open from Saturday 23rd September till Sunday 8th October. This year we are delighted to welcome guest exhibitors James Hake Ceramics, fine artist Ben Mcleod and Kate Stalker of Oubas Knitwear.

A wonderful mix of the highest quality fine arts alongside the best of local crafts, including greenwood chairs, oak swill and woven reed baskets, pottery, glass, textiles, jewellery and more.
The paintings and original prints on display will feature everything from intricate still life subjects to landscapes and the natural world.
The exhibitors spend a week assembling the show, which aims to put these fine arts and crafts together to create a home environment, giving people ideas for their own rooms and spaces.

I am also exhibiting at Rachel Bebb Contemporary in Hampshire: Rachel's next exhibition is in May - see her website, also instagram for more information and dates.

current projects

My workshop for the next few weeks is in a boathouse at Windermere's Fell Foot. Here I am carving a charming story of boating fun as recounted by Wordsworth in his autobiographical poem The Prelude. I am carving into four beautiful slate boulders which will be sited on the nearby gravel beach.

The National Trust is working to make this stretch of beach more accessible for walkers and swimmers alike.
