We're pleased to announce that we will be taking part in Dorset Art Weeks for the first time this year, and opening up our home as a pop-up gallery space.


Saturday 26th May - Sunday 10th June

11am - 5pm daily

Closed Monday 4th and Tuesday 5th only


On show will be some original illustrations from our children's picture books:

  •  Bear Feels Scared
  • Bear Feels Sick
  • Bear Stays Up For Christmas
  • Benny Barentatze und die Kleine Weltreisse
  • DANGEROUS!
  • The Great Cheese Robbery
  • I'm Not Sleepy
  • WARNING! This Book May Contain Rabbits

We've been busy creating some very special, original pieces painted especially for the exhibition, featuring characters from the above books. There will also be a limited number of signed books available, too.

As well as the commercial work for which we are known, Jane will be showcasing a selection of original, limited edition fine art prints, and Tim a whole new series of ceramic owl sculptures.

But that is not all.

 Oh, no.

 That is not all...

(as the Cat in the Hat would say!)


We're proud to be hosting some very talented artist friends of ours:


Colin Robert Davis - mosaic wall art

We love the care and attention that Colin gives to each piece he makes using vintage crockery, which end up looking both folksy and cool!


Martin Dickson - ceramic pots and vessels for the home and garden

Martin is a master potter (and awesome pottery teacher) with an eye for detail. From delicate porcelain to chunky planters.


Liz Walsh - willow sculpture

Liz steps a traditional rural craft up a notch or two with her beautiful, woven willow forms.


Pretty exciting, huh?

So please, make a date in the diary and come along. Refreshments - and delicious homemade cake - will be available to enjoy in the gardens.

We hope to see you soon!
