Local artist, Jocelyn McGregor joins us to share her journey as an artist with roots in the Cumbrian fells!
Having originally trained at The Ruskin School before going on to the Slade in London, Jocelyn’s recent achievements include a prestigious Henry Moore Foundation grant and an upcoming sculpture commission and solo exhibition at the Windermere Jetty Museum.
After completing a high profile public sculpture commission for Aldgate Square (London), Jocelyn is now back in Cumbria and when she isn’t running workshops or making work in her studio, can also be found behind the bar at The Farmer’s Arms.
Jocelyn joins us as part of our Wednesday night ‘Soup Talks’ series during which we host locals or people passing through the area to share their stories and expertise with a captive audience over a bowl of homemade soup! Often illustrated, each talk lasts approximately 40 minutes with time for questions and informal chat. The Stable Bar is open for drinks before and after the talk and those with tickets, get 10% off on the night.
