Around 1000 people have visited an exhibition of Cumbrian Artists in its first week at the Blackwell Arts Centre in Bowness-on-Windermere.
The historic house in the heart of the Lake District has hosted some big names in the art world but for the rest of the year it's be home to handiwork from closer to home.
One of the artists is Katy Holford, who came to glass factory Cumbria Crystal in Ulverston 3 years ago when the company was on the brink of bankruptcy.
Her designs turned the company around and they now employ 6 more people, including 2 local apprentices.
