I have been meaning to add something about our art to the site for ages… to answer the questions we get!
As reported in Cumbria Crack we have recently given a wall of our restaurant over to art by Kayleigh Richardson. She has created a lovely picture of Shap Chippy for us and it is surrounded by her own work – all of which is for sale.
Prior to this we had the glorious Rainbow Fish! This was created for us by Catbells class from Shap School after they visited us earlier in the year. As you can see it is beautiful! We are keeping it in a safe place.
Rona Newsom’s art held pride of place before that with her vibrant recreation of a Veldt Sky – from her South African childhood.
We also had an amazing wall hanging sent all the way from Sri Lanka – a friend’s daughter made it just from seeing us on the internet!
We also have prints by Libby Edmondson – an artist based in Levens, whose colourful pictures of the fells have been on the walls since we opened.
Other permanent features are some incredible felt pictures by the amazingly talented Maulds Meaburn-based Debra Esterhuizen.
