Hopefully you’ll be able to find the time to make it over to Welcombe at the end of the month to visit our Open Studios 2013 event. Looking like it will be a great event.

Welcombe Arts

Now in it’s 8th year, Welcombe Open Studios 2013 gives you the opportunity to visit the studios & exhibitions of artists, designers & makers in this beautiful village on the North Devon coast.  This years event has 9 artists showcasing their work – including photography, art, pottery, textiles, furniture, glass & more.  The 3 day event gives you the chance to see where the artists create their work and to buy directly from them or commission them.  For many of the artists this is the only event where they open their studios to the public.

This is only the first day I’ve been able to have a play with one but even the obvious pebble in a bowl of water yields cracking results. Hopefully even more glimpses into the ‘Blink & you’ll miss it’ world soon.
