Overview
More
Near the center of the historic haven of Stromness, this working studio/shop/gallery offers a colourful experience of the Orkney landscape. Painter, Jeanne believes art likes being accessible, so her images are found on quality reproductions, cards, tea towels, cushion covers, mugs, and more. Also for sale are creative projects from folks living in Stromness beside other ecletic crafts, all with a story tied back to Orkney or Jeanne. Since 2004, Jeanne has offered short workshops in the only North American contribution to printmaking, the Provincetown Print aka watercolour white-line woodcut which she is renaming with local adaptation, the ORKNEY WOODCUT. Future plans, to teach a workshop using R + F oilsticks aka oil bars. Jeanne will be one of the artists in residence at the Ness of Brodgar excavation summer 2018. Shop open year round. In season M-Sun 10 - 5ish. If closed phone for appointment.

Yes! What an amazing spot. An absolute must when visiting Stromness. The owner is an amazing lady. Take some time to step in, talk to her and perhaps buy some souveniers (if you would like them, of course) Cheers.

Jeanne is a very talented and generous artist. Her workshops are great fun even those who think they have no talent will be amazed and leave with great piece of work. Would recommend everyone to have a go. Or just buy a piece of art
