Patchings Art Festival 2015

Cathy Frood (St Cuthberts Mill) with the 
fantastic artist Jean Haines

As always we had another successful year At Patchings Art Festival nr, Nottingham. The sun was shining and the vast majority of our sponsored demonstrations were standing room only. Due to the interest in our quality papers, and quality demo artists, the popularity was overwhelming!

This year we also had one of our Papermakers Dominic Cooper, who joined Yew Tree Studios in selling our products in the Arts Material tent. Dominic proved to be the unique and outgoing character that he is by drawing in the 'punters'!
