I’m delighted to be bringing my art to the beautiful Renishaw Hall, in Derbyshire, for the Food and Craft Fair on 28th August 2022 from 10am to 4pm.
Renishaw Hall and Gardens is a special place to me so I’m looking forward to being there signing Ski A to Z first editions, chatting about how the book art and experiences were created. I’ll be showing some exciting new work which I’m busily working on to be ready to reveal!
In addition to Ski A to Z. I’ll be offering art prints. I’ll have fabric samples and a 2023 calendar to order.
There will be lots of lovely stalls at the Food and Craft Fair. Renishaw Hall and Gardens is a stunning private estate with literary and mining history which is home to the Sitwell family and is one of my favourite places to restore, explore and find calm. The gardens are available to visit and thankfully hall tours are now possible again. My visits to the gardens, quiet times painting, and meeting the lovely staff and wildlife, support my work.
Renishaw Hall Gardens is where I took the author picture for Ski A to Z. My publisher Meyer & Meyer Sport needed a picture urgently. So in May 2021 I dressed for the mountains and, trying not to melt, sought an alpine tree backdrop. The picture is in the introduction of Ski A to Z.
Ski A to Z is an illustrated introduction to skiing, packed with info, tips and advice to maximise enjoyment of skiing. Its fun of uplifting illustrations and some humour too. The book is ideal for anyone interested in snowsports or who is looking for a new challenge or adventure, More here.
If you already have a copy of Ski A to Z bring it along for signing, I would love to hear your feedback and your impression of the book, as this really helps spur me on and fuels my new work.
If you are not local but would like to order Ski A to Z click for the information here.
I’ll also be hoping to engage on the matter of a snowsports facility in South Yorkshire/ North-East Derbyshire and hoping to find some people/ land owners than can band together and get such a project moving.
Come along to Renishaw Hall on 28th August for the Food and Craft Fair from 10am until 4pm. Renishaw Hall S21 3WB.
I hope to see you at the event. If you’re not able to come along I hope that at some point you will be able to enjoy the gardens, hall, vineyard, lakes and courtyard cafe of Renishaw Hall.
