Our first day at Farfield Mill Arts and Heritage Centre
The Artists Residency Studio
Stella and I took up 'residence' today for our month-long Artists' Residency at Farfield Mill near Sedbergh nestling at the foot of the beautiful Howgill Fells. We were greeted by the friendly staff and it didn't take long to get all our stuff arranged and for us both to get down to work. Stella threaded up her loom and I began exploring the mill looking for inspiration, sketching and taking photos.
