Buying work

If you’re interested in buying my work you can either approach me directly (please read on!), or consider visiting a gallery that stocks my work. I try to keep up-to-date here with galleries that have stock, but it’s advisable to contact them before travelling.

Galleries:

Cheltenham Open Studios,    Gloucestershire
This event has over 70 artists’ studios open to the public from 8th – 16th June.  I will be at venue 56 (154 Hewlett Road) with my artwork, needle-felting and chatting, but please contact me if you want to make sure our paths will cross. You can find the (slightly complicated!) hours here in the downloadable guide book: https://cheltenhamopenstudios.org.uk/guide/
Please be aware the venue 56 will be closed on the morning of Wednesday 12th, and all day Friday 14th, when I will be at the Gardens Gallery, Cheltenham in the afternoon.

As for buying directly from me; sometimes I have pieces available.  If not, I’m happy to discuss particular requests or commissions along similar lines to pieces I’ve made. It’s not unusual for me to have several existing commitments, so please contact me well in advance of any present-giving occasion you’re buying for. After all, I am only one person, and a person who likes to go hiking for weeks at a time!

Prices:

Each piece is unique, so prices vary according to complexity and time taken in the making.  As a guide, the smallest ‘Bobbin Wren’ starts at £115, through to ‘Thread Bears’ at £195 – £225. ‘Jenny Wren on a Sewing Machine’ is around £255, ‘Hare Planes’ and ‘Plane Sailing’ bears from £355, and £345 – £425 for a ‘Running Stitch’ hare or ‘Narrative Thread Bear’ on a vintage toy sewing machine.

A Rough Guide to Size:

Bobbin Birds on vintage cotton reels (or spools), are a diminutive 6cm total height at their smallest, up to around 10cm.
Bears are usually 10 – 12cm (ish) standing upright on their woolly feet (not including anything they may be standing on), as are Hares, to the tips of their ears.  So a Hare like ‘Fiddly Digits:Itchy Breeches’ on a letter block is roughly 17cm tall in total.
