Its been a little while since our last Blog post, not because of inactivity so much but a lot more because of a lot of activity!..By way of introducing where we find ourselves today we both thought no better place than https://www.suffolkopenstudios.org. Last year’s event was coloured by the Pandemic but nevertheless we managed a safe and successful series of consecutive studio openings over several Weekends. It was a ‘no brainer’ to join with the event again this year.
We’ve taken great pleasure in showing work never seen before in public including our first collaborations on canvas and new multi-media pieces combining watercolour and print techniques. We also have new resin pendants on display for the first time alongside individually created paintings and sculpture that compliment our collaborative story. Holdcroft Handmade knits are making a special guest appearance with us this year, with a range of chunky scarves, hats, headbands and handwoven wall hanging. For more information, please visit Holdcroft Handmade Etsy shop.
It’s been tiring but very rewarding turning a workspace into a display space, for us there is even a slight nostalgia about a similar process all those years ago at Art school when end of year shows were curated but that’s along time ago! The result for Suffolk Open Studio 2022 is a comprehensive overview of what we have been doing recently presented in a beautiful woodland setting, we sincerely hope a few of you can come and see our work. If you do come to our beautiful corner of West Suffolk, its sensible to book a visiting slot here, as we are rural, guaranteeing a parking space completes a visit. This year for the first time for part of the event we have a work experience student on placement with us who we hope and expect will leave with a well rounded experience of how an Artists’ studio works and the constituent parts of our practice.
We hope to see some of you over the next two weekends in what we hope will be sunny Suffolk X
