Amazing to think that we’re well into the second weekend now of Open Studios. It has been lovely to meet everyone and hear their comments.
When it has been quiet in the studio, it has been possible to design and start carving a new piece. I have decided to create a large design, the full size of the tiles that I use for printing, so this one is 30cm x 30cm.
The new design has been inspired by one of my sketches and the glorious poppies that we had in the garden this year. The poppies are all gone now, (replaced with an abundance of roses) but they were stunning.
I don’t know how far I will get with the carving today, but it’s coming along bit by bit.
You are very welcome to come along and see the studio and gallery, it is open all the weekends in July, from 11am till 6pm Saturday and Sunday.
I can’t believe it’s only 25 Days to go! In the meantime, I need to finish all the Cambridge Open Studio preparations, clean the house ready for visitors coming to stay and tidy up my Studio.
At the moment I have 20 prints framed and ready to be hung, plus those that I plan to put into a display rack. I’ve also got some greetings cards printed and some that are made from prints all ready to be put on a card rack. It’s just a case of finishing everything off and tidying up, ready for the 6th of July.
It’s now 6 months till the Open Studios in July, and still a lot of work to do getting the rooms ready and getting my work ready for sale.
I am preparing for the Cambridge Open Studios in July, and am trying to get my prints finished and framed as I know that as we approach July time will disappear very fast!
The Cambridge Open Studios is where nearly 500 artists, craftspeople and designer-makers in Cambridgeshire open their studios and invite the public to come and visit them for some or all of the 4 weekends in July. They (Cambridge Open Studio – COS) produce a booklet to advertise all the studios available to visit, but it is possible to view participating artists on their website. Click on the link below –
