To coincide with the launch of the Tall Ships Festival, from Friday, May 24, Hattie’s unique pieces, together with work by artist Russell Haines and others, will be displayed in a pop-up shop in a wonderful space on the ground floor of The Lock Warehouse in the basin of Gloucester Docks, courtesy of Melt Homes, who have developed the building into flats. The pop-up shop will be there for six weeks.

The shop will feature her restored, repainted and upcycled furniture and Russell’s new body of work: a series of portraits of women. Both Hattie and Russell will be working there as well, with various workshops planned – Hattie will demonstrate some of the techniques she uses and Russell will work on a large-scale mural.
