Due to current situation with the spread of COVID 19 and the move to Tier 3 we have taken the decision to close The Old School Muker for the winter.
We very much look forward to seeing all our customers and friends in the spring.
The Old School Muker is proud to present Clearing Skies, Muker, a thoroughly modern take on a timeless view of our wonderful village, by Jill Ray, one of our most popular artists.
Over the years many artists have painted this iconic view of Muker from above Occupation Lane looking down over the bridge and into the village, with Kisdon as the backdrop. Jill’s version is created digitally, layering shape upon shape to create different hues and shades, all coming together to form the image.
Clearing Skies, Muker is exclusive to our gallery, so if you’re interested in owning your own copy please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Paul has painted a series of watercolours inspired by Upper-Swaledale, from East Stonesdale to Thwaite, from Smithy Holme to Muker, the work perfectly captures the mood and feel of the stunning landscape that surrounds our gallery in Muker.
These original watercolours are exclusive to The Old School Muker and when it’s safe to re-open our doors you’ll be able to view Paul’s work in our gallery. In the meantime if you’re interested in owning one of Paul’s superb paintings as a memento of our beautiful dale, please contact us on 01748 886155 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
In Pauls words:
“My work reflects the rugged scenery of the landscape, either in the context of wild places or in the nature of the Pennine hills, where I live. I draw my inspiration from historical connections using layers of colour, texture, shapes and patterns applied with energy and feeling. My main inspiration is light and the effects created by the contrasts of shadows.”
Just the ticket if you need a gift for someone who loves art, crafts & Swaledale when you can’t make it up the dale, but still want to support small businesses.
Just call us – 01748 886155 – and we can pop it in the postbox
