The Mustard Mill @ In The Frame, is the e-window of framer and printer 'In the Frame' of Kirkby Stephen. Perdu Puzzles, producer of fine and exacting jigsaws are also showcased here.
In particular, we feature the detailed railway art of Alan Gunston, a true expert in his chosen field. We will also present other artists' work from time to time.
The whole of the River Eden passes through the Devil’s Mustard Mill, an impressive waterfall you can view close up at Stenkrith, on the outskirts of Kirkby Stephen. The quip used to be that it made the water hot to the Devil’s taste!
True to form, we aim to spice up your living space with our quirky prints of humorous hunting and rural art, railway art, giant black and white prints, landmark tower pictures for famous towns and cities, and plenty more besides! If you’d like to buy an original, please let us know via the contact form.
If you’re a gricer, a trainspotter, or a lover of beautiful machines, dedicated to vintage tractors, railways, and steam trains, we’ve got treats aplenty for you. Alan Gunston’s glorious retro-style train station posters, beautiful portraits of famous steam trains, and close up details of railway work, will lift your heart and help you remember more clearly the good old days.
If you prefer it a bit more funky, Matthew Ellwood’s landmark tower pictures and big print towers could take centre stage on your walls, with his busy pen and clever construction of fantasy and dystopian scenes.
We’ve got oils, watercolours, mixed media, and the occasional surprise, to tantalise your art sense and still your eye and mind. Take your time to immerse yourself in what we do, and if you think of something you’d prefer, we’re happy to produce something original and bespoke with your instructions.
We do what we do because we love art! But from that we can offer opportunity to other artists, local and further afield. We also offer a connection to this little town of ours, beloved as it is to walkers, cyclists, historians, and romantics, the world over.
Art is a gift. It’s the artist’s gift to recreate their vision in a physical medium. It’s a gift from the artist to their audience, and it’s something you buy to treat yourself or someone else.
The Mustard Mill is our gift to you. Enjoy.
