Open Studios at Exchange Place

Imogen's Imagination Open Studios 2019

Open Studios is always the annual highlight of the year at Exchange Place Studios.

Ever wondered what artists get up to in their creative spaces? 

Our Open Studios event is a rare opportunity to find out!

Naturally, my studio on the 5th Floor will be open for you to visit. This is your chance to see where I spend my days working, and catch me doing some demonstrations too…every day is a work day!

This is the perfect chance to come and play with hats as I will have a full display set up. There will be some new designs, as well as firm favourites. 

This will be my only event before Christmas and my card reader will be primed to allow you to start your gift shopping!

If you want to start your wish list, you can see all designs in stock here.

Visitors can venture inside both the Yorkshire Artspace Sheffield City Centre buildings and see over 100 artists and makers from over 30 different disciplines at work. There really is something for everyone!

Open Studios is a chance to catch a glimpse into the creative process, chat with the artists and makers and even buy work direct from the space it comes to life in.

There will also be a chance to view the Painterly Exchange exhibition at Exchange Place during Open Studios.

If you fancy getting creative, there will also be the opportunity to take part in free painting workshops during the weekend.

Need to refuel?  Local cafe Albie’s will serving coffee and cake on site too!

If you would like a sneaky peek at what you can expect to see during the weekend, check out the fab video from Yorkshire Artspace…you may spot a familiar face!

When I agreed to be filmed, I didn’t know that the footage would be used in a separate project.

Imagine my shock (one dark, rainy and very late Friday night) on seeing images of myself being projected onto the side of the studio!

However, it was a huge honour to be featured as part of the Making Masterpieces project in conjunction with the Big Draw Mural.

Over 300 people took part in creating the mural and you can see it next to Exchange Place studios.

Pop Up Shop Now Open 2Imogen’s Imagination is now OPEN at the Winter Garden Pop Up Shop!

The shop will be open daily until 30th of June so this is the perfect time to choose your essential accessory for a summer wedding, although I’m afraid you may be cutting it a little fine for a last minute Ascot hat!

In addition to all your favourite designs from my range of hair accessories, I will also have a new collection of ready to wear hats and fascinators. These designs combine classic millinery techniques with modern twists. Each of the new pieces are wonderfully suited to provide inspiration for your own bespoke order.

As the only dedicated hat shop in the city centre, I very much look forward to welcoming you to this unique shopping experience.

I’m sneaking in a cheeky little date this weekend at Steel City Style Exchange!

Steel City Style Exchange is a high fashion clothing swap, focusing on ethical clothing exchange.

The goal of SCSX is to create an event where you can find new to you fashion in exchange for your unwanted, but still stylish clothing. This inaugural event aims to present a relaxed boutique style event, for exchanging interesting items.

The emphasis is on sustainability, reducing waste, reusing clothing while at the same time creating an exciting event for the discerning fashion wearer.

 

 

For full details of how the swap works and how to drop in your items for sorting before the event, check out the Steel City Style Exchange Facebook Event.

 

If you’d like to know more about the brains behind the event, check out the SCSX blog and find details of some of the available swaps on their Instagram page
