South Northamptonshire Art Trail 2016 Success

Last month I took part in the 2016 South Northamptonshire Art Trail which was held in a variety of venues, homes and studios across Northamptonshire for 9 days.

For the duration of the 9 days, my work was exhibited at The Hayrack Gallery at The Old Dairy Farm & Craft Centre in Upper Stowe. The Hayrack Gallery has been a stockist of my work for the past 9 years, and was actually the first gallery I approached after graduating in 2008. I love this gallery – the artists work on show is always very varied and of only the best quality. The gallery is nestled among other little boutique shops in a courtyard, and there are always some sort of animals to see, not to mention the two extremely friendly cats!

The Old Dairy Farm is also home to the Barn Restaurant where I had the best afternoon tea this weekend just gone…

On the last day of the Art Trail, I was in the gallery demonstrating how my tea light houses are made. It was a lovely sunny autumn day and was great to see so many customers flowing in and out.

It was a productive day but I didn’t manage to get as much made as I had planned, due to lots of chatting, tea drinking and cake eating! But I am not complaining 🙂


Thanks to everyone who came to visit me and my work during the Art Trail. The Hayrack Gallery still have a collection of my work on display, available to purchase. You might find some other gift ideas for Christmas too!
