Rumwell Hall is also the home of New Leaf Life Design who have been coaching artists to improve their business skills for the past two years and who are again operating this service this year. The work with this client group has attracted 50% funding by Somerset County Council in recognition of the value they bring to the local economy.
The creative industries sector in Somerset employs circa 8,000 people and accounts for approximately 8% of the county’s workforce. The sector generates approximately £400 million in output per annum in the county and forms a growing part of Somerset’s economy.
Becky Wright, Coach for New Leaf Life Design said, “I am delighted to be working with John, his wildlife images bring a great tenderness and beauty. It’s simply stunning to see his work at Rumwell Hall.”
Pam Knight from Rumwell Hall said, “The rooms at Rumwell are open for use by companies all over Somerset so it is wonderful for us when an Artist offers their work to hang on the walls. John’s photography looks wonderful and has been the topic of much discussion as to how he has managed to capture the spirit of nature so skilfully. We are very grateful for the loan of these beautiful pictures.”
John Crabb will be giving an illustrated talk to the Somerset Wildlife Trust at 7:30pm on Friday 25th January 2013. The venue is the Parish Hall at the top of North Street, Illminster, Somerset. Entry is just £2 for non-members.
