Our guest blog is by Diane Gilder who is one of the artists running the Art Room, Wilkin Hill, Barlow, S18 7TE.  The Art Room is a unique art space on the edge of Derbyshire set in a traditional hay meadow.  It is approximately 4 miles from the centre of Chesterfield and 8 miles from Chatsworth House.  As well as exhibitions, a varied programme of tutor led creative workshops are run throughout the year.

Here are some of the April workshops: 

Saturday 11th April   Long Stitch Spine – traditional method of constructing a book.   Tutor: Jo Owen
