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.
