  1. Like so many summer events, the annual Nidd Art Trail  has become a virtual happening, with over 50 artists and craftspeople from Nidderdale and the surrounding area being represented, with links to their other online platforms and selling outlets, some of which are now open again. 

  2. A group exhibition exploring the concept of ‘verge’. This could mean looking into the edges of physical spaces, existing on the periphery of society, being on the verge of a psychological breakthrough or transitioning between different states of emotion. Within this group of experienced practitioners, creative responses encompass a range of media to present a rich and diverse body of work which holds a lens to the various verges we encounter through life.

    Inspired, Danby

    I'm delighted to be leading these workshops in conjunction with The Lost Words exhibition for children age 7 years and over. Come be inspired by Jackie Morris's award-winning illustrations and Robert Macfarlane's evocative spell poems and work with natural resources, silk and gold leaf to create your own joyful nature art!
