South East Open Studios - 5 -21 June - Studio 244

  02 Jun, 2015


The summer is meant to be here although looking at the weather as I type this you'd think it was winter!  

The start of June means Chelsea Flower Show is behind us and South East Open Studios will soon be upon us and the chance to be nosey and visit other artists in the local area.  I love SEOS as it's a great time to talk to artists about the materials they use, their inspirations, how they became an artist and to watch them demonstrating their craft.  I am always amazed by the amount of talented people there are on my doorstep who I knew nothing about.

This year SEOS will be different for me as I'll be opening my studio for the first time.  I'm so excited as I love meeting new people who also have a passion for jewellery and so if you are around Kent during 5 -21 June then pop down to the quaint old village of Yalding and come and visit.  I'm Studio Number 244 in the catalogue and my opening times are: Wednesday and Friday 1 - 3 pm and weekends 10 am to 4 pm.  If you would like to visit at a different time them please give me ring on 07973 955994 so we can arrange a mutually convenient time.  I'll be serving tea/coffee, homemade lemon drizzle cake and of course our own pear juice made from pears from our own orchard. 

Why not make a day of it?  There are several other artists on the doorstep:  Rebecca Laister (studio no 243) works in fused glass, Sue Williams (245) works with watercolours to create stunning paintings of plants and Carole Robson (246) has a loose and experiment style to produce some stunning paintings of meadows.

I hope to see you in the next couple of weeks.
