A well-known tapestry and textiles worker in North Somerset will be opening her studio in Weston-super-Mare for the next few days as part of the North Somerset Arts Week – donating 10% from the sales of all her own work to our Ramsay Research Fund.
Deborah Pawle – whose daughter Charlotte has ME/CFS – will be exhibiting with other artists at her Sand Studio, 75 Beach Road, Kewstoke, Weston-super-Mare BS22 9UP, and promises to keep up donating for a whole year.
Joining in the North Somerset Arts Week exhibition will be Jo Herbert, (who works in jewellery and porcelain) and Severn Ceramics, who work in a variety of ceramic styles.
Deborah's daughter Charlotte (seen with her mum at the Glastonbury Festival) said:
“My mum is my absolute hero. I don't know what I'd do without her!
“She looks after me when I'm too ill to look after myself, gives me emotional support and so much more.
“She even drove me to Glastonbury Festival for the day because I wanted to go so much. Her and my friend Emily worked hard caring for me and making sure I had a tent to rest in. It caused a six-week relapse but it was worth it because it was the best day ever!”
Sand Studio will be open throughout the arts week from 11am-5pm every day. Tea and cakes will be for sale – with the money from them going to our biomedical research fund.
