Ideas for Mothers Day

We have lots of ideas for gifts and treats for mums this year. There is jewellery by Adele Kime, Marie Canning and Georgie; high quality prints from Ingrid Karlsson-Kemp, Louise Janetta and Erika Robertson and lots of work from local artisans. And knitting kits. And workshops – why not treat mum to a day if arty, creative fun? And there’s still time to get your hands on one of these personalised prints by Alexandra Snowdon.




Ingrid Karlsson-Kemp is teaching a class for us at the end of March. Participants will work with textiles to create an art work inspired by a favourite song or piece of music. Moondance is inspired by the Van Morrison song of the same name and shows how scraps and trimmings can create a magical piece. Thank you Ingrid!

The class is called ‘Rhythm of the Stitch’ and full details are on our workshop page.
