Are you interested to see how John the blacksmith forges these Lakeland horseshoes into beautiful hearts?
Well I was, so John invited me along to see how they’re created, he even let me have a go at creating a Shepard’s hook poker myself 😀. I had no idea how involved the process would be. I took a number of wee films throughout the morning and will be posting them on social media over the next week. So watch this space to see sparks fly, literally.

Is it gin o'clock yet? (Well, it is Friday!) We've got the fabulous Hadrian's Wall Gin in stock!
This wonderful local gin draws inspiration from an ancient monument rich in history and steeped in tradition. Handcrafted in Northumberland, it's infused with traditional Roman herbs & botanicals including Angelica, chamomile, coriander, pimento & mint to give a truly authentic blend of Italian culture and rural Britain. Sounds good!

New Artist in Bumblebee - Daniel Cooper
Based in Cumbria, where he is home to arguably some of the most beautiful views in England. Daniel responds with highly emotional expressions to the sublime weather in the Lake District National Park and Cumbrian landscape. Using charcoal and mixed media, he observes reality imaginatively, and aims to communicate the ever changing moods of the land and skies through personal involvement with the landscape.

‪Freyja, a third generation seamstress from Kendal has created these stunning faux taxidermy characters. She combines her knowledge of fabric characteristics with her skills manipulating 3D shapes to form these charming and unique creatures.‬ #bumblebeegallery #blackhallyard #kendal #welovekendal #kendal_mintcakeandmore #kendalcumbria #southlakes #thelakes #cumbria #shoplocal #shopcumbria #swipii #mycumbria #amex #thekendalcard #fish #owl #otter #fauxtaxidermy

So excited to have Sam Martin Art join us at Bumblebee Gallery.

Sam is a self-taught artist who loves being in the great outdoors. Most of her inspiration comes from her love of walking in the countryside, she sees the landscape in blocks of colour and this is reflected in her paintings.
Sam lives in North Yorkshire with her husband, 2 children and border collie, who she says insists on bringing a ball to play with when she should be painting. Her favorite place happens to be the Lake District, Cumbria, hence many of her paintings are from the local summits of fells around us which she has walked with her family.

I love the vibrancy of colour and simplicity of shape which Sam uses to depict the landscapes around us. I especially love her wild flowers adding the illusion of movement.

The prices for her original works start at £125.

These hand-poured, contemporary concrete and gold foil, paraffin wax candles are created by concrete artist Andrew from his family run studio in Surrey.
Andrew, originally a jeweller became interested in concrete when he started using it in his jewellery designs. From there he began experimenting making bowls and pots, his creations now extend to create these beautiful and unique candles.
The concrete base has been predrilled beneath the wax so that once fully burnt it can be used as a tea-light holder or airplant display.

The beautifully scented Kushboo Soaps are on now my shelves. They are inspired by Sarwat’s Indian roots and handmade just down the road in the Ribble Valley. Her ethos is to be kind to skin and kind to nature, with this in mind her ingredients and packaging are 100% natural, sustainable, cruelty free and where possible local. In addition she gives back to the community. For every batch of soaps made she creates a batch of soap for the homeless charity Nightsafe so in a small way every time you buy a Kushboo soap your helping to support homeless people get back on their feet.

New in from The cabin collective: spoons, knives and spatulas. They’re all beautifully handcrafted in a wee cabin in Ambleside. These particular pieces were created from the branches of a horse chestnut tree in Thirlmere, Cumbria. It was a victim of Storm Desmond back in December 2015. A wee bit of Cumbria history to take home.

No need for arguing about turning the central heating off at home! Just use a throw to take the evening chill away instead and add a dash of style and colour at the same time - simple!

I have fallen in love with these beautiful ceramic salt pots made in Windsor by Rhian. Each pot is hand coiled, from a stoneware gritty clay, free-hand so each pot has its own unique shape. The outside of the pots are left free of glaze and textured; the interior is smoothed and brightly glazed creating contrast. Each salt pot is then paired with a fabric coaster and old condiment spoon.
A perfect addition to any kitchen.
