Webshop Updates

Shroppie kingfisher cards

Webshop Updates : we are currently working on the webshop with the new cards and maps being added along with some other items.  It has been an ongoing process after encountering a problem with gauging an accurate postal pricing system.  Great news… we are now linked with the royal mail to gain up-to-date pricings with weights.

So there we are, over the next few weeks there should be some activity with lots of new maps going on there along with cards and mugs.

Maps… talking about maps we have 3 new maps this year with the Nottinghamshires Waters, Chester & Llangollen Canal along with the Warwickshire ring.  All maps are now uploaded and the cards will join them shortly.

It’s great to be able to finally get the webshop up and running properly.

We are currently on the Chesterfield Canal on the Nottinghamshire Waters… its been a lovely summer and its been great travelling some of these waters this year.

Expo 18 at The National Waterways Museum

The opening at The National Waterways Museum in Ellesmere Port on the 20th of July.  It runs till the 4th of November, I have some pieces of work in there as part of the group exhibition Canal Art… not what you might expect.

I have been travelling on the canals and rivers of England and Wales on the ‘never ending journey’ on the ‘Wrong Way Round’ since January 2014.  As it says on the tin… so to speak it is a journey of ‘Art & Travel’ recording, writing, drawing the things we see and the routes we take on that journey.  I exhibit those findings as and when possible… in this case it is maps and wildlife which are influenced by milestones, time and scale.

Mile stones, boundaries and maps.
