Some photos of the exhibition at Tullie House...

30 December 2012, Arts, events and places, Would you like to leave a comment?

Apologies to everyone following my blog of late – as you’ve probably guessed, I’ve been incredibly busy over the Christmas period and have not had a chance to keep you updated! However, the rush is now over and I’ve got a bit more time to catch up on other things.

I have a fair amount of tidying up to do in the workshop – lots of bowls make lots of shavings and these all need to be cleared up! However, I fancied a break today, so thought I would have a look around the exhibition at Tullie House in Carlisle. I mentioned this in my last blog post and was keen to see how it looked.

The exhibition extends along the full length of the hall, with the C-art shop at one end. There is a selection of my work in the shop, along with some ceramics, paintings and felt work by other C-art members. The main hall displays a full selection of work by other artists, including furniture by Michael Slaney and paintings by Monica Metsers.

The photo above shows a view along the main exhibition hall, with two pieces by Michael Slaney in the foreground. My work is featured in the C-art shop, which is shown below. This exhibits a variety of pieces by selected artists and craftspeople.

There is a café quite close to the exhibition and parking is available along all of the neighbouring streets.

Over the next week, I’m going to be processing a fresh batch of timber for this coming year – this includes much more natural edge yew! I also have about three tons of spalted beech which need chainsawing and will post some pictures when I cut into it…
