YORK artist Linda Wormald’s Garden Gallery & Shop will host its Christmas preview event from Thursday to Saturday, 10.30am to 4.30pm.

“Indulge in a complimentary mince pie and glass of prosecco – or juice if you’re driving! – and be the first to browse an array of exquisite Christmas gifts hand-made by York artists and makers,” says Linda, who runs her gallery and shop at 3, Windmill Lane, York, YO10 3LG.
“If you’re seeking something truly unique that you can’t get on the high street, the Garden Gallery has something for everyone, from jewellery to ceramics, home decor pieces to fine art. Look out for some incredible hand-made Christmas cards in our popular card corner.”
Located near the University of York, the Garden Gallery & Shop was set up in her garden by Linda, who had a building especially constructed to fulfil her concept.
“Surrounded by rich woodland and my contemporary garden, the gallery elicits creativity in abundance and is the perfect location to showcase my paintings in oils and acrylics,” she says.
In May, Linda, 72, expanded the gallery to accommodate works by other renowned artists and makers, most notably artists who have participated in York Open Studios and who sell their work internationally.
“This charming collective of artists and the inviting location make it a real pleasure to run” she says. “We’ve had such a wonderful response so far and the gallery looks enchanting in preparation for the Christmas season.
“We are fully Covid-compliant, and contactless payments will be accepted.”
