South East Open Studios (SEOS) 2019

My next event will be SEOS - starting very soon on June 8th. There’s lots to do in the studio to get everything ready for you. It’s a huge programme so before it starts I thought I’d share some details of the exhibitors that particularly caught my eye.

Showing with me in my studio is Annabel Faraday (venue no 128)

Clay Culture Trail

You are all invited to join us for the first ever Hasting Clay Culture Trail event. We have 13 talented ceramicists in 4 venues for you to visit. It’s an amazing range of work so there’s lots to discover!

My studio is one of the venues (no. 1 on the map) and I will be showing my new Dungeness series as well as my thrown tableware collections . I’ll also have christmas decorations, postcards and seconds at clearance prices and information about my forthcoming courses.

Guest artist Yvette Glaze will be showing with me and brings along hand-built forms that carry her distinctive print-making approach.

We look forward to welcoming you for pot-talk, home-baked goodies, mulled drinks in handthrown cups and more.

Coastal currents 2018: my pick of the events & exhibitions

Coastal Currents is the massive arts festival for Hastings & St Leonards. I will again be opening my studio as part of the festival but I thought you might also like to see some of the many many other things that are happening to whet your appetite!

There's also an intriguing series of installations by Shopkeepers of the World exploring the idea of the charity shop as the archive of the community. The completed works are on display in a range of shops in Bexhill & St Leonards. Details on p53 of the printed programme, but I haven't managed to find them on the website so we may have to just go for a wander and see what we find!

South East Open Studios ends this weekend

I am opening up my new studio again this weekend, as part of SEOS, along with guest artist Celia David.
