Into the Woods, December 2016
This references both the seasonal splendour of Norfolk’s woodland at this time of year with work inspired by its distinctive features, as well as the Stephen Sondheim musical re-contextualizing the conventions of the fairytale.

Featuring paintings, drawings, photography, textiles (cushions, rugs and wall hangings), hand-turned wooden bowls, lights and lanterns, handmade ceramics and bespoke furniture. The show comprises household décor must-haves from around the £15-£50 mark, to original works of fine art and furniture priced in the £100s up to more unique and highly sought after work for around £3,000.

The exhibition will be held at Priory House, Langham Road, Field Dalling near Holt NR25 7LG. There will be a preview day on Thursday December 1st from 12 noon to 8pm. Members of our mailing list and sponsors will enjoy an early look at the exhibition and enjoy festive drinks and food provided by Feast. Public opening times will be from 10am to 5pm Friday 2nd, Saturday 3rd, through to Sunday December 4th, 2016. This venue is provided by kind permission of Nicholas and Emma Deterding.

We organise pop-up exhibitions of work by artists and craftspeople based across the eastern region. 
A big thank you to our main sponsor, Norfolk Country Cottages, for their support in making this event possible. Along with our generous hosts Nicholas Deterding and family, we are thrilled to open Into the Woods in Field Dalling, North Norfolk.
