What can you find in the new Wotton 240 print?

After a rather long wait Richard has finished the Wotton-under-Edge print - 'Wotton 240 Buildings'. This wonderful print is now available in A3/A2 with a limited edition run of 240 prints. Available directly from us here at Surroundings and Fifi's Fancy Furniture, Wotton.  A large version is looking wonderful on the wall at 'The Edge' cafe, Wotton.  This is a regular hang-out for us and a real honour to have the print on display there (they also have the best bakewell tart). Have a look and see the little extras Richard has added within the streets. We hope you like it.

Richard's most recent prints have arrived back from The Fine Art Printing Company. This stunning image sums up the beauty of Oldbury's Sailing Club with its soft, subtle tones and nostalgic depiction of a lazy walk down to the club. As with Richards other pieces, prints are available in A3/A2 mounted and/or framed.

Riflepaper Co has arrived from the U.S...

After Richard was struck by the very cool designs of a Riflepaper Co print that he framed for a customer that we just had to start stocking them at Surroundings. We are so please with the new cards and gift wrap designs. Watch this space for the other independent U.S card company, Ladyfingers Letterpress...

We've gone all raw and homespun!

These linen 3m ribbons are going down a storm at Surroundings alongside the other new East of India additions that adorn our newly painted dresser. The new stock works so well against the Annie Sloan Paris Grey/Old White raw mix.
