The summer has finally arrived and the longer balmy days are here.  I love this time of the year.

The Open Studio is a chance for micro-artisans to show and sell their work to a large audience.  I have been part of this now for 5 years and greatly enjoy the event and of course the opportunity to sell my work to a wider audience than just on line.

My studio is very small and with the best will in the world only a few people can visit at one time, so I opt to join several other artisans and show at a venue.  This year I will be showing at The Quay Arts in Newport. This is a fantastic opportunity since it is the central art gallery on the island and has a lovely cafe and bar which attracts all sorts of people.

I am not going to be exhibiting alone, I will be alongside:

Jan Elliott – Textile Artist – her first Open Studio even Jan will be showing her lovely textile art.

Clare-Louise Sandell, Glass Maker  – Clare-Louise has a small studio where she creates the most beautiful and contempory glass that would grace anyone’s home.

Tracy O’Brien – Yarnsmith – Tracy creates beautiful things using the softest of yarns and the lovliest of knitted and crocheted stitches.

Pink Jen – Silversmith – Jenny’s work is sublime, she creates works of delight in Silver.

I am so looking forward to this years even, a new venue and lots of new work to share, sell and talk about and to meet up with friends and maybe meet a few new ones.
