Rook's Hill - Ghost Tales from a Hidden World

by Rosemary Pavey

Ten stories of life and death to stir the imagination - intriguing, entertaining and beautifully written, Meet 'The Thing' in The Old Rectory, a lethal adversary at chess, a dying painter and two old bats who run a pets' cemetery...

Listen. Draw up a chair. The wind has a tale to tell and you might be surprised to hear what the wind knows.

From January 1st 2015, Unit 13 at the Turner Dumbrell's Workshops will be Rosemary Pavey's new studio and gallery, housing a permanent display of prints, cards and original paintings together with work in progress, recent publications and the sort of creative chaos only to be expected in an artist's hideout.

Visitors are always welcome. Call by on a Saturday morning between 10.30 and 1.00 to poke around without obligation or e.mail me if you wish to visit at another time and I will open up for you. I am there most days of the week but my working times vary.

Why not join the mailing list and come to our special exhibitions and open days to view the pictures, browse the books and enjoy delicious free refreshments!


How to Find Us  

Turner Dumbrell Workshops

are situated on the B2112 on the northern edge of Ditchling village. These former farm buildings now house the studios and workshops of various local artists and makers, thus continuing a tradition of Art and Craft in the village which dates back to the early 20th century. Free parking is available for visitors. Once part of the original dairy, Units 6 and 8 are to be found in the main building. Turn left at the door in the corner of the yard and keep going past the stairs. You will see the studio ahead of you.

A new series of paintings exploring the landscape of Mountains.

Ever suffer from mountain-sickness - the longing to take off into wild and inaccessible places?

300 miles from the nearest peak, Rosemary finds a cure by swapping boots for brushes and takes a walk in paint through the wilderness landscapes of her mind.

Exhibition open throughout weekends in May and at other times when possible. Please see opening times for daily information.
