Here are some of the stockists where you buy Dawn’s work. Each gallery has different products, as each of Dawn’s pieces are unique. Prices range from £20 to £150+, so there is something for everyone. Each shop has it’s own individual style, some are primarily art galleries, whilst others offer a range of fine art & crafts, and items suitable for gifts. Often working primarily with local artists and makers, all of them work hard to ensure that their ranges are hand-made, often unique, and not imported. If you’re in the area, why not check some of these places out?
The Hard to Find Gallery – it’s really not that hard to find. Possibly England’s littlest gallery, this small but perfectly formed small shop carries a selection of items, along with some fine work from other locals. It’s also run by my lovely and very talented friend, Jackie of Treehuggery.
If you’re in Ilkeston, why not pay a visit to the award winning Erewash Musuem? It’s just off the market place, and is a fabulous, family friendly local museum with a tea-room in the recently refurshed stables that offers a great selection of home made cakes and freshly made sandwiches at very acceptable prices. There’s a small range of items in the museum shop.
Cromford Art Gallery – where else would that be, apart from Cromford? This is owner and watercolour artist Martin Sloman’s studio, as well as shop gallery. It’s set in the delightful village of Cromford at the edge of the Peak District, is a Derwent Valley Heritage Site and where Richard Arkwright established a water powered mill, and is considered a significant part of the Industrial Revolution. There’s plenty to do in Cromford, as well the art gallery, the original Arkwright Mill centre, and don’t forget to visit Scarthin Books, amongst other places.
Suki Craft Gallery – an independent gallery in the beautiful village of Tutbury, not far from Tutbury Castle. Spread over several floors, there’s lots to find in this treasure trove of the best of British Arts and crafts.
Work is sometimes available online. Dawn makes lots of samples when developing ideas and also like to use up offcuts of glass to reduce waste, suitable for smaller sized pieces. This is also a great way of showing the type of work that you can make at the glass fusing workshops. You can go through to the Etsy Shop by clicking here (Etsy Shop). If you don’t have (or don’t want to get) an Etsy account, please contact Dawn and she will be happy to arrange an alternative method of payment for you.
