Arts at The Folly is always a very popular local event and 2024 sees it returning stronger than ever. The exhibition takes place at The Folly in Lea (DE4 5GJ) on 17th, 18th and 19th May and is a relaxed and friendly event with the artists present to chat about their work and techniques. Light homemade refreshments are available (including gluten free and vegan cakes) with any donations made for them going direct to Mid Derbyshire Badger Group. This is always a well attended exhibition with guests returning year after year so make sure it is in your diary!

“It is always one of my favourite events. Being in someone's home within that wonderful creative and talented community makes it all the more special for me.” DF

The artists taking part this year are as follows:

Frances Daunt - animal artist who works in a variety of media. She will also have her very popular map art on show.

Kate Beinder – Kate will have her pebble pictures which make fantastic gifts and will also be unveiling her new line of work.

Silver Silkie – Jewellery. Jane's speciality is working with ancient techniques including Keum Boo - the Korean practice of fusing 24K gold to silver - and all of her jewellery is hand made in her Derbyshire studio.

Jenny Neale – photography, including intentional movement images and cyanotype prints

Lynn Hazel – renowned British wildlife sculptor

Jeanette Hallam – hand crafted paper flower displays.

The Folly can be found on Main Road, Lea – next to Lea Green (opposite The Coach House and close to the Jug and Glass). Visitors are encouraged to also visit Lea Gardens which will be in full bloom.
