Cats and dogs inspire exhibition at Ferrers

The cats- and dogs-inspired Four Paws exhibition at Ferrers Gallery, in which the middle floor will be brimming with handcrafted work paying homage to our favourite four legged friends, runs until May 8.

From wet felting to anodised aluminium jewellery, ceramics to collograph prints; canines and felines alike are immortalised by some of Britain’s most talented designer/makers, including ceramic dogs by Virginia Dowe-Edwards (pictured) and work by Garry Jones, Duncan Thurlby, Louise Brown, Tom McDowell, Katie Stone, Catherine Kleeli and Lucy Gell.

There will also be a number of demonstrations including Lucy Gell demonstrating cat and dog mono prints, on April 23.

Ferrers Gallery, at Staunton Harold, is open Tuesday – Sunday 11am – 5pm.
