Allanbank Mill Steading, Open 5th to 8th August 2016 from 11am to 6pm. A summer experience not to be missed!
We are delighted to welcome this year’s guest artist, the distinguished photographer Graham Murrell. We wait with excited anticipation to see Grahams photographic studies of our Steading, at the confluence of the Whiteadder and Blackadder, and other images of our Borders Region. His previous projects have included studies of Blackwell (the Arts and Crafts house) in Cumbria; Kettle’s Yard in Cambridge and The Snape Maltings in Aldeburgh.

Charlie and Stuart Herringshaw have finished building the ‘Lunchbox’; designed by Jacquie Milham. This is our new garden guest room and is now complete. Charlie is very pleased to be back in the studio and has produced some wonderful, sensitive and magical 5ft square drawings – several will be on show. Also, throughout the garden and in the studios a display of sculpture and even a chance to peep behind the scenes into the sculpture stores.

Pauline’s textile work will be home, after showing at the Bowes Museum and the Ruthin Craft Centre – she will feature this work, plus a new ‘Quiltscape’, which connects very much with the truly inspiring landscape in the Borders.

Everywhere is open – you are invited to join us – it’s a lovely summer experience to see the garden; view the artwork; see the studios and come and say hello! We provide tea, coffee and cakes and you could have lunch at The Allanton Inn, just around the corner.
