SEPTEMBER 12th 2020

WHATS HAPPENING?      My dad last came into the shop on Wednesday  March 11th.  That is 187 days ago!  We have re-started, or rather, I have (Mich’al).

Currently I am processing work in as near as possible as it was before ‘lockdown’.

Ideally, I would prefer you to email me or telephone for an appointment (like you might for the dentist!) and I will respond to you and arrange a slot.

Opening hours: Tues-Fri 09:00-14:00 and Sat until 12:00

I have made the shop ‘protective’ so we can do things without contact.

These are the email addresses you can use:

alansturk@me.com

rixsonmn@gmail.com

If you prefer to text or call,  my dad’s number is: 07761478625

I have an ambition to mount and sell some interesting prints over the coming months

….watch these pages or the shop window.
