South East Open Studios 9th - 25th June - Would love to see you!

  Behind the Scenes, Exhibitions

In June, signs of paint tubes pop up randomly around Kent announcing that South East Open Studios is upon us.  Artists and craftspeople across the South East open their doors to the public to offer a sneaky look behind the scenes of artists at work and chat ab

out what inspires them and how they create their pieces.  A wide range of work will be on show from traditional oil and watercolour paintings to digital art, ceramics, jewellery, textiles and fine metalwork. It is a unique opportunity to meet, talk to and see local arti

sts at work with no pressure to buy.  The event is free to the public and to see which artists are taking part you can flip through the guide on-line (  The guide is useful as shows where artists are located and the times they are open and also is useful to keep to flick through during the year when you want that special present!

I'm looking forward to taking part again this year and am open from 1 – 7 pm on 15, 16, 19, 20 & 21st & 10.30 to 6 pm on 17th & 18th June.  As well as having my work on show and demonstrating you can try your hand at carving your own simple ring.  If you like it, then for a small charge, I'll have it cast, finish and polish it ready for you to wear and enjoy. I can't wait to see what designs everyone come up with.



Yalding is a stunning, quaint village so why not make a day of it and visit the other 2 artists in the area and stop off for something to eat at one of the 3 pub around or the Village Tea Rooms.



Sue J Williams is well known both locally and internationally for her stunning botanical drawings and paintings.  She is constantly inspired by the beauty of structure, colour, pattern and texture in the plant world and enjoy the challenge of depicting them in watercolour. Each one is a labour of love! (Lughorse Lane, Yalding)



Carole Robson is a mixed media painter and art tutor. Her paintings are driven by strong feelings about ecology and man's impact on the environment; her desire is to elevate nature's case and celebrate meadows and wild places. (Pikefish Lane, Laddingford)




Look forward to seeing you.
