Forge Arts Frontage

"Absolutely Engaging!" LB, Woodthorpe.

Forge 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.

Open Saturdays & Sundays 11- 5pm / Tel: 01673 860441 / Satnav: LN2 3PF

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.

Lino Cutting

Forge 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 pages.

In 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!
