Showcasing incredible talent and celebrating artists in the Borderlands
A lifelong painter, Bella's passion for colour included 20 years as a tutor of colour and drawing at the Royal College of Art in London. She now devotes her time to painting her delightfully expressive studies. Many of them have a story to tell, which you can read here.
Following her retirement as a doctor, Heather studied Art & Design and became hooked on smoke-fired ceramics. Her inspiration is the natural world and hand-building with clay lets her capture just a little of that and bring it close. Her pieces are incredibly tactile. See what's in
After 25 years working as a master restoration gilder, Nancy is exploring the creative effects of light bouncing off burnished 23ct gold leaf layered over a textured gesso surface. She creates the most exquisite sparkling wall panels that make perfect gifts for a special occasion.
Julia creates unique and fabulous sandblasted designs on handblown 24% lead crystal bowls. Her studio is at the nearby Hirsel Centre For Arts and Crafts and is well worth a visit.
Rob creates gorgeously tactile pieces of furniture from Elm trees. He allows the grain and the ‘character’ of the wood to dictate its transformation into furniture that is rare and beautiful as well as being functional.
Master craftsman Tom Cooper makes beautiful hand-crafted furniture and exquisite lathe-turned wooden bowls. His studio near Dalkeith is open to visitors by appointment.
Luke Batchelor's sculptures are pure joy and delight carved in stone. His studio is at the nearby Hirsel Centre For Arts and Crafts. He works mainly to commission so if you want a bespoke House Sign or Pet Memorial he'd be delighted to discuss your ideas.
