Very pleased to have on show (and for sale!) works  by Barbara Tomlinson, an artist based in Bellegarde-du-Razel

We currently have two paintings, one of Flamingos mounted on board as well as an abstract inspired by a kimono design from the Japanese Middle Edo period.

Barbara has also produced two fantastic wall hangings – photos to follow!  These will be hung shortly, once some essential plumbing work in the shop is finished.

As a fellow silk painter I can vouch for the quality of Barbara’s designs; the Flamingos resemble a watercolour – very difficult to do on a textile, while the kimono design has superb gutta work, indicative of a highly skilled artist.

Feel free to contact us for prices and any further information

Here’s the latest selection of silks – large scarves in crepe georgette and Japanese Habotai alongside a new series of ‘jungle’ paintings, which rework motifs I drew some time ago but with new compositions, background and colour effects.  All are unique pieces – paintings can be reproduced but due to the nature of silk painting, exact copies are impossible

En sachant que j’aime manger et j’ai toujours faim, on a décide de diversifier notre stock et vendre de la confiture artisanale, produit par Poussière d’étoile de Sorèze.  Venez gouter des parfums orignaux, par exemple thé Earl Grey, Fleur de lavande, Figues et miel, Pomme au cidre ou Calissonne.  Je vous promets ils sont TROP BON !

In order to stop our rumbling tummies, we have decided to stock a selection of locally home made jam.  Unusual flavours that, we promise, are REALLY tasty.  Spoon something different on your toast such as Apple Cider, Lavendar, Sweet Almond or even Earl Grey. Tea time will never be the same again!
