Arts - Picture Framing, Art & Wood Sculpture
- specialise in frame making, woodcarved furniture and house
signs. Established in 2005, we are situated in the picturesque
rural Lincolnshire village of Hackthorn, just 6 miles north of the city
of Lincoln, and offer superb quality bespoke picture framing
and house spectacular organic and mainly abstract work of artists
from the surrounding area. We are the main outlet for celebrated local chainsaw
carver Mick Burns - his range of Garden
Carvings (carved owls being the most popular) can even be mailed
to your door.
(almost) every Saturday & Sunday 11- 6pm / Tel: 01673 860441 / Satnav: LN2
We are also the main supplier of paintings
and prints from talented local artist Mike Finney - he now hosts short
courses here in lino block cutting and printing - why not come along
to the Forge and try making your own prints? Ideal for unique, personalized gifts!
See our Art
Courses pages for details. The course fee is just £60 (£35 per
day) and includes all materials and use of all equipment and tools (just bring
an apron!). Please contact
us if you would like to attend.
Arts has also acquired an exciting range of work from
skilled carver Terry Hooley - his clock sculptures are a must-see!
We have also taken delivery of some exquisite mirrors from Liz Burns
- unusual and truly unique mirrors made from choice rounds of remarkably grained
wood decorated with Pyrography - see examples of our artist's work
on our Galleries pages. Our latest additions
are hand-made archaeological Folding Osteometric Boards made exclusively
for Elmet Archaeological Services Ltd. See pics on our Woodcarving

addition to work from the above artists, we have some unique jewellery,
hand-made cards and one-off glassware for sale. We offer framing
discounts to art students - up to 50% discount for bulk orders!
We are open every Saturday and Sunday and, being located on the doorstep
of RAF Scampton, chances are you'll also catch the Red Arrows giving their
own carving demonstration!
