The Studio of Stephen Pickering

Visit | Chylds Hall

20 – 21 July 2011 - 10:00 until 16:00

An exclusive opportunity to visit Stephen Pickering's studio at Chylds Hall in the Cairn Water Valley. Stephen's is a small, artisanal furniture restoration business which has been running for over 30 years. He uses traditional tools and methods and conducts thorough research into each piece of furniture to ensure his restoration is historically in keeping. Stephen's studio is home to an extensive collection of old timbers and veneers.

Stephen will lead tours of his studio (normally closed to the public) in groups of eight. The tours will take place on Wednesday 20th July and Thursday 21st July in the morning from 10 am to 12 noon and in the afternoon from 2 pm to 4 pm. Refreshments will be offered by Mrs Pickering for a charge of £2.50 so that she can gift aid the proceeds to her favourite charity 'The Smile Train'.
