Did you know that Matt also does photo-restoration?

Loads of us have boxes of old photographs – some passed down from previous generations and others taken in our youth. For those of us around in the 1960’s, many of our childhood pictures are imprisioned on slides, rarely seeing the light of day. All these precious memories can be given a new lease of life and shared round the family.

Using a special technique, Matt photographs the image and converts it to a high quality digital image. Using his expert photohop skills Matt can then remove blemishes, improve clarity and bring out details that you never know were there. Prints can then be made to fit your frames or of course, you can commission Matt to make you a frame.

Christmas orders by December 11th please.

Call Matt on 07803 151699 or email him on mattjgartside@gmail.com

Aly is doing a tempory ‘Artist in Residence’ gig at Farfield Mill near Sedbergh until the end of May.

The days of the week will vary as to when she is there, so if you particularly want to see her just get in touch to find out when she is next there. You can also find out the latest on her facebook page as well on Farfield Mill’s facebook page.
