On our way to Hay-on-Wye last Friday we stopped off in Ledbury to visit the marvellous Tinsmiths.
We had a lovely chat with proprietor Phoebe Clive, and as we mutually admired the St Judes prints around the walls, she mentioned how great it was to work with Angie and Simon Lewin as they are such lovely people.
Merchant & Mills by two more friends of ours, Carolyn Denham and Roderick Field (who we then bumped into in Hay on Sunday).
Alex Clive. It is both quirky and homely, whilst also being modern and fresh - a shed-full of contradiction.
Geffrye Museum - inviting, precious and delightful.
Kate Farley, who has an exhibition coming up next Summer, and printmakers such as James Brown. One of my favourite new illustrator-artists at the moment is Alice Pattullo. Besides her work on the walls of Tinsmiths, she has done some lovely work for Cecil Sharp House in Camden. I notice from Tinsmiths Facebook page that they have just received some new work by Alice inspired by the tradition of the Harvest of the Sea festival linked with London's Billingsgate fish Market.
