An exhibition featuring the work of some of the finest woodworkers in the North West has opened in Clitheroe.

The Mayor of the Ribble Valley, Coun. Richard Sherras, and his consort, Mrs Lynne Pate, officially launched the exhibition at Clitheroe’s Platform Gallery.

The exhibition, which will run until Saturday, September 28th, features a wide range of items, including sculpture and bespoke furniture crafted from a range of techniques such as hand shaping and greenwood carving, as well as the latest technologies.

The Platform Gallery and Visitor Information Centre is run by Ribble Valley Borough Council and provides a market place for handmade crafts, workshops and educational events. It is open Monday to Friday from 9 am to 5 pm and Saturdays 10 am to 4-30 pm.

The gallery is now looking for artists for its winter exhibition, especially those who make items for children. A spokesman said: “We are now looking for new artists for ‘Winter in the Valley’, this year’s winter exhibition. We would especially like to hear from artists who make items for children, however please get in touch with other wintery or festive work too!”
