Sprint Mill Gallery
From 14 – 29 September 2013 a cooperative of craftpeople and artists will be exhibiting together at Sprint Mill, Burneside for the first time as part of C-Art Open Studios.
Set in a 19th century Fulling Mill on the River Sprint this is an opportunity to discover a range of exciting art and traditional crafts in an idyllic setting. Our work celebrates the natural world and includes photography, original artworks, basketry, handmade chairs and other greenwood crafts.
Open every day of C-Art from 11:00 to 16:30

Installations of natural order substances inserted into the space within redundant double-glazed units so as to achieve unusual visual impact.

Florence Acland – photographer
Photographs paying homage to Sprint Mill and its contents. The subjects are everyday objects and tools which my father has collected and cherished over 50 years, taken from the darkness of the mill, arranged and photographed so that they and their makers and users can be appreciated.
Susan Pettman – willow grower & basketmaker
Baskets and woven willow in traditional and modern designs derived from ancient English, Irish and French techniques.
White words to fill space
Lorna Singleton – oak swill basketmaker
Splint wood baskets and bags in oak and ash. These are traditional baskets from South Cumbria, and baskets inspired by Native American Adirondack styles.

Steve Tomlin – woodworker & scythe teacher
I make carved wooden bowls and spoons, dining chairs and other goods using traditional hand tools and locally sourced timber. Each piece is unique with an organic tactile surface which reflects subtle patterns of light and demands to be touched. Beautiful and useful craft for the home.
Eva Ullrich – artist
Locally based Glasgow School of Art graduate making paintings ranging from 20cm to 3m in size, also showing a series of studies from around Sprint Mill. It is the parallel between the meditative space provided by nature and by painting, which drives me to create my landscapes, part real, part imagined.
Hans Ullrich – potter
I like to make art for community spaces as well as individual pieces. These are usually based on natural figurative images. Recently I have worked on ideas based on water elements using the spiral as a form to bind the composition together. I am fascinated how the microcosm reflects the microcosm, and how images can be used to portray both at once.
