Patchings Art Festival 2017


Work in progress by Ann Blockley on Saunders Waterford paper


The St Cuthberts Mill crew have just experienced a weekend full of creativity at Patchings Art Festival. All our art demonstrators were fantastic, and the crowds had a brilliant time. We had our ‘Try and Test’ area again this year which was a huge success, and was manned by Dominic Cooper and Kate Taylor from St Cuthberts.

An artist new to Patchings was Carne Griffiths. Carne performed several demonstrations for us over the weekend. Well done to Carne for keeping the audience entertained when the electrics blew, firstly because of his kettle (he paints with hot tea, ink, and alcohol), and secondly because a camper van plugged in, and tripped the electrics out. Even with these slight interruptions, every demo went exceptionally well. A massive thank you to demo artists David Bellamy, Ann Blockley, Soraya French and Carne Griffiths. And huge thanks to everyone at Patchings Art Centre for yet another fabulous festival!

See you for the Patchings Art Festival's '25th Anniversary' next year!

Terry Harrison




It is with great sadness that we have learned of the passing of artist Terry Harrison. We have collaborated with Terry for many, many years, and have always had a close relationship with this wonderful, kind and caring man. Our thoughts are with Fiona, family and friends.
We will miss him greatly.
