A regular participant in Spring Fling Open Studio Weekend since moving back to Dumfries & Galloway in 2010-11, I’m delighted to be able to open the doors of my furniture design studio not only at this time, but throughout the year.
Traditionally over the Open Weekend, I collaborate with artists from other disciplines (ceramics and jewellery to date), which adds additional interest to the event.
There are discounts for ‘Spring Fling Friends’ – and if you plan to call outwith the Open Weekend, I just ask that you make contact prior to turning up – in case I’m out and about in the woodlands sourcing timber or inspiration for new projects.
And don’t forget – not only do I design and make everything myself, right to that last loving polish – I give bespoke masterclasses too. Just ask!
Although unable to welcome visitors to my studio/workshop during Lockdown, I am lucky to work alone, close to home, so that I have been able to continue with commission and speculative work during this distressing time for everyone.
I’ve also been progressing the new showroom – to be sited adjacent to my house on the banks of the River Esk. And maybe there is more thinking time for new pieces – perhaps something really special can result from this enforced period of reflection.
