Event Details

Land of Oak & Iron are excited to host the next of our regular ‘Meet the Maker‘ events at the Heritage Centre in Winlaton Mill.  Our next Meet the Maker event is with Robert Permain.

Robert is an artist from the North East of England.  He graduated with a BA hons in Graphic Design in Newcastle and worked in international video production, while still devoting time to his first love of painting and drawing. Robert is now a full-time artist and sells his artwork in the UK and worldwide, also featuring in Northumberland and Durham galleries along with an online presence.

“I love to capture the wealth of the scenes that surround me, with much of my work taking inspiration from the North East of England – an area with an incredible history and magnificent beauty. I also enjoy observing and painting wildlife, some of which are now available as high quality giclee prints.

I work in different media, but most often return to oil or acrylic on canvas or board, using brushes, palette knives and anything else that helps give form and texture to my paintings.  Commissions are very welcome, including pet portraits”.

Come and meet Robert at his ‘Meet the Maker’ event and help to support local artists and makers.

Some of Robert’s artworks and prints are also available to purchase for a limited period in the Heritage Centre shop for the 2 weeks running up to his in person event day.

Some of Robert’s artwork can be found here: You can also follow him on Instagram and Facebook.

‘Meet the Maker’ will be outside under cover of the gazebo unless the weather is cold/rainy – in which case it will be situated in the foyer area inside the Heritage Centre.
