The exhibition in East Lodge at the moment is an inspiring collection of photographs by Hilary Roberts, Master of the International Federation of Photographic Art and a Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society, and ceramics by Jenny Chan joint 2nd award winner of Arts & Crafts Design Award 2018. Both rooms look fantastic; Jenny is making some of her work whilst she is there which is interesting to watch and she is keen to talk about her work. Hilary is there also and loves to engage with people so please come along and support them.
