20th Birthday


Time really flies when you're having fun!
I can't believe that on the 1st July it is 20 years since we opened for business back in the summer of 1993.

This is where it all began, our first workshop at Middle Farm, Firle.

A year later the Argus ran this article about us when we had moved into a larger space on the farm and were steadily building up a loyal customer base.

By the summer of 1995 it was time to move into town and we made our home in this lovely old building in Mount Pleasant. We completely renovated the building from basement to chimney and had three very happy years and our two children here.

On the 3rd of March 1999 we moved into our current position on Lewes High Street, having jumped at the chance when No. 57 High Street became vacant. 

My very favourite thing about this shop is the opportunities it gives for changing the look of our window displays. Here are some of my favorites;


 

Other highlights of our years in business have been the exhibitions that we've held in our Lewes shop, the first being the work of Tom Hammick in 2004, and again in 2006.
In 2008 we held an exhibition of Beautiful paintings by Lewes artist Helen Turner.

After a chance meeting at the Royal Academy Summer show in London, 2010 we were very proud to stage a show of work by Britain's leading exponent of Op art Bridget Riley.

Early spring of last year we were approached by Jessica Zoob, whose amazing large scale abstract paintings are gaining her a reputation with collectors internationally. 

Steve and I have been incredibly lucky to have worked with a great team, changing over the years, but consistantly skilled and loyal.
