We are really excited to be curating our first Shop Floor Project exhibition in an actual venue. We have chosen the Parsonage Rooms as our site in the stunning market town of Broughton-in-Furness in south Cumbria. The exhibition will focus on new crafts using traditional techniques from all over the world, very apt for this village which once had thirty five shops from a cobblers to a dressmakers.
We'll keep you up to date with our developments. Why not come up to the Lakes for the Easter weekend and pop in! Other places worth a visit if you do come up are: the ancient Inn at Broughton mills (almost has a dirt floor) www.theblacksmithsarms.com, the stunning Arts and Craft house www.blackwell.org.uk and the glorious tea terrace overlooking Lake Coniston at John Ruskin's house, Brantwood www.brantwood.org.uk
