Open Studio -Open Garden

This year, like many folk , my exhibitions have all been cancelled or postponed
I’ve therefore decided to open my studio to visitors this summer…and to open my garden too!

Just before lockdown we hired a digger to build a wildlife pond and a vegetable garden to add to the ‘Wild Garden’ we are delighted with the results and would love to share our special garden and some new paintings with you all during this challenging time.

We will be serving tea /coffee and cake ,at a safe distance through the kitchen window ,bring your own cup and plate….bring a picnic too if you want to stay a while and the weather is good.
Refreshment proceeds will go to McMillan Nurses.

Here’s the deal-Turn up @ Plum Tree Cottage ,Brigsteer .LA8A8N.
on  Sat 18th July and Sunday 19th July 2020 from 10-5pm

– sanitise your hands before you open the gate
– collect a numbered ticket from the table under the veranda
– wander and enjoy the garden, eat cake and drink tea until your number is called to come into the studio
