The sessions start from TODAY and will run throughout the school holidays-see you soon!

Horizons by Valerie Barker

From the 2nd June, we'll have some gorgeous silk pieces available to view in The Gallery Cafe exhibition area.  Each piece is created by the super talented Valerie Barker.  Valerie is an artist, cartographer and designer.  Her work includes botanical illustration, estate maps and embroidery.  Currently she is exploring the use of silk and thread to construct landscapes and seascapes observed on and around her croft, in Caithness and in the wider environment.
