Women’s Work, by Lancashire born, London based artist Freya Pocklington has been commissioned by the National Trust as part of our Trust New Art programme.


The drawings were developed by Freya earlier this year as part of the Dorothy Una Ratcliffe Fellowship, an ongoing programme of work by contemporary artists taking place at Acorn Bank, near Penrith, encouraging them to develop new work inspired by the Cumbrian landscape.

Visitors will be able to see eight large drawings in situ at Acorn Bank and five smaller pieces at Hill Top. This will be the first time the we have displayed a contemporary exhibition inside Beatrix Potter’s original home.
