    I was amazed with your work whilst window shopping in New Mills today . Your fish in Bartons window is superb and the seagulls very comical, especially the one you are asked to be aware of above you!!!! I especially like the recycled lamps and am wondering where you will be based in New Mills on the Sat. assuming you will be there …… Hopefully!
    Thank you

    • Hi Ingrid, that’s great to hear!

      Unfortunately I won’t be at the arts trail in person on Saturday. I can make the lights in to order in most colours and/or I can send you a picture of ones I have made up already. I’ll be collecting the fish and their feathered friends on Monday day and happy to drop things off to the local area.
