Wildlife artist to share her secrets over a pint


RENOWNED wildlife artist Clare Brownlow will be dropping into Holmes Mill for an informal chat and demonstration of her craft at the next Beer Club event on Thursday 25th January.

Clare has a long-standing connection with Bowland Brewery, having designed the distinctive logo for the Ribble Valley brewer’s flagship Hen Harrier ale.

Clare’s eye-catching artwork now adorns the hand pumps and bottles of half a dozen Bowland Brewery beers and she will be popping into the Beer Hall on Thursday, January 25 to talk about her unusual approach to capturing nature in paint.

Based in the beautiful Scottish borders near Hawick, Clare uses natural pheasant feathers to achieve the signature spots and splashes that are the hallmark of her work.

Since designing the logos for Bowland Brewery’s portfolio, Clare has branched out into new areas and her artwork has been featured in influential lifestyle magazines like Tatler and appears on exclusive home furnishing products.

The Bowland Brewery team will also be on hand to chat about the beers that Clare’s bold designs have brought to life: Hen Harrier, Buster, Pheasant Plucker, Deer Stalker and the latest product from the Bowland stable: Boxer Blonde.

The event is the first in a series of events at Holmes Mill aimed at real ale enthusiasts. Taking place in the Chimney Room, these events offer an opportunity to enjoy informal tastings, find out a bit more about local breweries and chat to the brewery teams.

The event is free to attend but guests need to register in advance click here to register.
