Last month we told you about a special event whereby installation artist Alice Francis would be attemping to cover an entire Galloway Cottage as part of the country’s premier open studios arts and crafts event – the Spring Fling. The extraordinary feat proved to be a huge success, with the specially made loose covers fitting snugly around the contours of the building, including its three large chimneys.

Alice even went to the lengths of covering herself in the same floral fabric as her cottage covers. She wore a suit made from the Plumbs’ Rose & Scroll fabric, standing out from the crowd and merging into her latest arts piece.

Helping to cover an entire building was a great challenge for us and to have achieved it with such success proves our motto to be true, that Plumbs really can cover almost anything! It has been a true delight to work with Alice on this project and we wish her every success in her future ventures.
