Prom Art at Grange-over-Sands in June

Once again another blue sky day. We are really being blessed this year with the weather. Once again some new stalls  appeared, that makes it much more interesting and makes us think that the word is getting around about how good the quality of the art and crafts is. We took a picnic this time. It made the day into a real treat.

The June flowers are much more dramatic than the spring ones.

Here are a few of the new stalls that appeared in June.

"Bride and Groom" at Unique Image, Lower Brook St. Ulverston, Cumbria (01229)58 33 66 brought a fun collection of handmades and photos to show the work that they do in Ulverston.
Sue Hollinshead has been a long term member of the Prom Art group. She is well known for her beautiful flower paintings in watercolour and in June brought a good collection of landscape and seascapes.

Bee Beautiful Ltd. 173 Chapel St. Dalton-in Furness LA15 8SL
They produce bath goods using where possible natural ingredients.
People gathered around Tony Saunders facinated with the basic tools that he used to create the many items that he brought with him....spoons,besoms, stick chairs and best of all longbows. He is one of only a few medieval longbow makers in the country.

Since Monty Don's programme about crafts showed a worker of green wood making chairs, lots more people have shown an interest in this ancient art.

  1. Fascinating. I'd really love to be there, but the distance makes it a tad unlikely. All success to you.

  2. Thankyou Dave. It's always a fun day, as long as the N.W. weather holds. Fingers crossed.


I'm always glad to receive a comment so a big thankyou to all those who leave one.
