Events and Galleries

2024 – 

My work is available from :

Yore Mill Craft Shop and Gallery located in the former mill building next to the Upper Falls at Aysgarth in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales.Yore Mill Craft Shop and Gallery opened in July 2021. Its gallery looks out over the Upper Falls and it is unlikely that there are many finer views out of a gallery window in Yorkshire or beyond.
