Nat Morley, artist
Nat’s work reflects her passionate interest in the natural world, depicting creatures with a bit of ‘attitude’ aiming to create bold, lively images.
It is a celebration of her love for wildlife; capturing a feeling of movement, vitality and humour in pictures. Nat specialises in relief printmaking and she also loves painting in oils on large canvasses and has done many commissions of still life and portraits. natmorley.co.uk

The Guest Book with the Curly Tail – A Pig in Time Saves a Rhyme
A loving restoration of Florence Sahler’s delightfully eccentric, fin-de-siècle guest book – published in 1902 – which invites your friends to ham up their best hog-like impression (blindfolds optional!) as a crackling token of their stay. Every page amusing with another familiar or adapted piggish rhyme. And why not?
A Pig in Time Saves a Rhyme was written by Florence L Sahler and first published in 1902. Over the years, it has entertained guests ranging from well-known artists to those who struggle drawing stickpigs; but from children to centenarians, as they’ve chuckled forming their own swine, the universal cry has always been to insist that others be allowed to enjoy the simple satisfaction of creating their own porky interpretations. So here is your chance
