If you follow Print Circus on social media, you may have seen that we took a recent very wet trip to the Lake District with my husband's parents and our twin boys.
If you are familiar with Grasmere, you will be able to picture us trying to ignore the rain as we mooched around the lovely independent shops and cafe's (we had a coffee in www.emmasdell.uk which comes highly recommended!) Our new waterproofs barely having seen daylight before being soaked almost through.
I want to share with you a wonderful gallery we happened upon. Not only a showing beautiful original pieces but also an exquisite selection of homewares, perfectly presented prints and reproductions, an inspiring selection of books for all ages and a dedicated and specialist art supplies section. I was in my absolute element! And the rest of the party were also very pleased to look around and take in the superb selection. As it turns out, my husband's parents have a few pieces which they have collected from here over the years.
Heaton Cooper Studio also have a brilliant website from which you can order of you are not going to be passing in person any time soon, so do take a look.
I thoroughly enjoyed the huge, loosely painted piece by William Heaton Cooper pictured. So atmospheric. Can't wait to visit again!
