We are absolutely chuffingly chuffed to have our work featured alongside such brilliant artists as Peter Layton at the New Ashgate Gallery’s Summer Exhibition!  Peter’s new glass sculptures are really exciting and we are so proud to share a space with his work.

The New Ashgate is situated in Farnham a short drive down the A3 and A31 along the Hog’s Back.  What an excellent excuse for a jolly day out in lovely, leafy #Surrey.
