Friday 8th December, 11am-4pm
Join us for a book signing with author of Bristle, Peg and Ping the Red, Wendy Elwood. Wendy is a local author who creates delightful stories about the plight of the red squirrels – we can’t think of a more lovely Christmas gift than a signed copy of one of her books, which retail at £5.95.
Artists at Low Sizergh Barn
Lining the cafe walls is a selection of work by local artists Marjorie Park and Thuline De Cock
Marjorie is a landscape painter (though a few of the farm’s hens have found their way into sketches in this exhibition). Scout Scar, Sizergh Fell and the River Kent are close to her home.
Marjorie works en plein air, sketching and painting, gathering and storing impressions to make work informed by the experience of being in her own environment. Back in the studio her sketches are sometimes worked on thick heavy-duty watercolour paper. The results can be quite unexpected.
Marjorie has exhibited at the Lakes Artists Society Summer exhibition, the Upfront Gallery and Rheged
Thuline, originally from Belgium, is best known for her animal portraits with a twist. She produces oil paintings, screen prints, and mixed media studies and exhibits all over the UK and Ireland.
She has been teaching drawing and painting classes and workshops in adult education for over 15 years and runs classes for children at her windermere studio. Our cows here on the farm often model for Thuline .
