Artists / Mat Do


After turning up on Grizedale’s door step one weekend for an impromptu chin wag and subsequent foot in the door, a year or so later Mat Do interned with much energy during the build up to the opening of the newly refurbished (and completely overhauled) Lawson Park. Doing some serious grafting he helped Director Adam Sutherland add some of the finishing touches to the house and mixed emergency cocktails when required.

Mat carried out the first residency at Florence Mine in Egremont, the new arts centre. This relationship came about through Mat’s interest in Grizedale’s 'Creative Egremont' project.
