Swindon Open Studios 2017

We are thrilled to again be part of the Swindon Open Studios this year and will have pottery handbuilding and throwing taster sessions, arts and crafts and other activities taking place throughout the two weekends of Swindon Open Studios, ie 9th and 10th September 2017 plus 16th and 17th September 2017. We will also be open on Tuesday 12th, Wednesday 13th and Thursday 14th September. You are more than welcome to join us either for the activities on offer or simply to browse some of the fantastic artwork being exhibited.

Sociable, relaxed, fun classes for anyone wanting to explore or simply enjoy pottery, arts and crafts. Popular workshops include 'mugshots' and 'create and chill with clay' both aimed at encouraging individuals to be creative, have fun, create a keepsake or gift and socialise. All ages welcome, we even have a 'tots and pots' class for mums and toddlers.
Facilities are available for visiting artists offering a range of creative workshops, demonstrations and classes.
There will be an opportunity for short 'taster' activities during the open days.
Refreshments and possibly a garden (subject to weather!).

Precious metals, resin, organic materials and merino wool are used to create pieces of jewellery inspired by the natural environment. I reflect on the organic forms, colours and textures I come across whilst traveling or gardening to inspire my work. You will be able to see resin and semi-precious stone brooches with layered gold leaf and pearl: delicate geometric earrings and sea pebble necklaces.
