A Day Out in Cumbria

4 Feb

On my last day at home before returning to university for my final semester I went walking with my mum and the latest addition to our family, Pip, a lovely 6 month old rescue puppy. It was a lovely winter morning, icy yet bright and sunny, below are some of the photographs I took from the shores of Derwentwater.


After a morning walking and a spot of shopping we visited Rheged to see the ‘WOW: Wonder of Wool and the Art of Knit and Stitch’ exhibition. The exhibition features the work of 20 artists and designers, the work on show was very varied; I particularly liked the work of Celia Pym who mends frayed and holed garments.  Unfortunately I cannot find a website for Celia Pym but some images of her work and some more information is available here: http://www.transitionandinfluence.com/gallery/celiapymstatement.html
