Allendale Forge going from strength to strength

Last week I popped into the Allendale Forge, both to get an update from Amanda, who runs the place, but also to meet some of the artists and studio holders. The Forge goes from strength to strength, with a vibrant atmospehere, beautiful art and a variety of services available, and a great cafe where you can while away an afternoon - including free wifi. Celebrating the return of the Lindisfarne Gospels this summer, six artists from Network Artists in Northumberland are showing their inspirational  paintings throughout August. I saw the beautiful paintings and met some of the artists and would urge you to go. More details about how to rent a studio and the attractions on offer at the forge are here:
