CARLISLE CONTEMPORARY ARTS GALLERY, The Old Fire Station, Carlisle city centre. http://www.ccagallery.co.uk/
This gallery was just opened in November of 2018 near to central attractions like Carlisle Castle and Tullie House and is a co-operative of 10 Artists and Makers who all have a connection with Carlisle and North Cumbria. From large and stunning works of art to collections of small pictures, prints and cards there are many different styles of art on display. Not only that but beautiful ceramics, really unusual and quirky sculptures and jewellery and every month, a guest artist or maker in the mix. Open from Wednesday to Sunday (10am – 4pm, Sunday 12 – 4pm), entry is free to this gallery and dogs are welcome. The Old Fire Station also has a bistro under the gallery so you can enjoy a coffee or a light lunch during your visit. The pieces I have on display here are all made with Silver and semi-precious stones.
PERCY HOUSE GALLERY, Cockermouth, Cumbria – http://www.percyhouse.co.uk
Percy House is in the delightful town of Cockermouth, one of my favourite places in Cumbria. The town is full of character and has unique, individual shops and a great selection of cafes, restaurants and traditional pubs. Percy House itself is well worth the visit as parts of it date back to the 13th century and don’t miss the 15th century ceiling on the first floor. Viv and Karen are two lovely ladies and always have a good exhibition on show as well as a shop crammed full of lovely things. You wil find my jewellery scattered around this Alladin’s cave of treasures.
FARFIELD MILL HERITAGE CENTRE, Sedbergh Cumbria – http://www.farfieldmill.org
Farfield Mill is a really delightful day out in a charming area of Cumbria. It’s been a massive restoration project, taken on by a local lady who felt the history of the mill should not be allowed to die. Now it’s not only a thriving heritage centre, but also a centre for the Arts, with over 20 individual working artists studios, workshops to help you learn lovely new ‘crafty’ skills and four floors of galleries, exhibitions and hundreds of lovely things to buy. It also has a cafe on the lower floor where you can take you tea and cake by the river on fine days. It’s run as a charity, so your small door fee helps maintain it. My jewellery is on display in one of the cabinets on the main shop/studio floor, just beyond the main entrance.
TULLIE HOUSE GALLERY AND MUSEUM, Castle Street, Carlisle – http://www.tulliehouse.co.uk
Tullie house is a focal part of the old town part of Carlisle, surrounded by historic buildings like the beautiful Cathedral and abbey ruins, but Tullie house itself displays the best of old and new. If you love the Arts and Crafts period, Old Tullie House is a must and the Millenium new building (attached), opposite Carlisle Castle houses the spectacular Roman museum and an ongoing collection of exhibitions throughout the year, together with a light and airy cafe, where you can take tea in the Roman gardens on fine days. My jewellery is on display in the main shop.
SCOTBY VILLAGE SHOP, Scotby.
Just a small selection on show in this lovely traditional village shop on the village green at Scotby, just outside Carlisle.
