In the Milking Parlour Gallery you will find painting, sculpture and print works from Sasha Constable, Carolyn Finch Corlett, Deanne Tremlett and Frankie Toomey.

This has been described as a stunning show ‘Well worth the visit’..In the Art Barn we have a varied selection of works from our Guggleton Painters, who meet four times a week in the Barn to improve their skills with the help of our painting tutor, Carolyn.

All works are for sale in this vibrant show and there is plenty to tempt a discerning eye….In the As The Crow Flies shop we have a an exciting range of crafts and art sourced from makers working or living within a 20 mile radius of our farm yard….

The photography of Luke England, prints by Barbara Wagner, woodturning from Jake Channon, woodwork from Ian Thompson and Mark Codling, glassware from Gringlass, Emma Mawger’s Dorset Uglies, Lynn Cull’s silver work and stunning embroidery from Hatti Love Design….wonderful gifts with a great provenance!

Our up-cycled, rescued and generally just purloined, bric a brac store, The Byre Brocante, is brimful of interesting nicknacks, collectibles and absurdities and well worth a quick browse while you are on site….

PLUS you can take a look at our latest plans for the development of our facilities to provide a separate ceramics classroom, covered sculpture yard and print studio…..

There will be impromptu performances from our Musical Director, Siska Redman, everyday at 1pm, demonstrations of Flower Arranging, by Kate Robinson, on Tuesdays, Printing by Barbara Wagner on Bank Holiday Monday and drop in life drawing sessions with Deanne Tremlett on Thursdays….
